China launches hi-res SAR imaging satellite

A new high-resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imaging satellite was launched from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in northern Shanxi Province on Wednesday.
The Gaofen-3 satellite is China’s first SAR imaging satellite that is accurate to one meter in distance. It covers the globe with an all-weather, 24-hour observation service and will be used for disaster warning, weather forecasting, water resource assessments, and the protection of maritime rights.
