China’s Gaofen-10 is Operational

Continuing our coverage on China’s space program, Euronews.com is reporting the country’s high-definition Earth observation project is successfully operational and in orbit. A microwave remote sensing satellite capable of providing photographs with a ground-level resolution of less than a metre.

With that level of accuracy, you can easily identify someone’s face from space. The PRC said it will be used for urban planning, road network design, crop yield estimates, disaster relief and more. 

A similar lens and satellite technology is being developed by Teledyne in the United States. More coverage on them soon…
