The project was launched on Tuesday at the Wenchang Cosmodrome in Hainan Province in southern China. Its developer is the company Tianjin Satcom Geohe Technologies.

According to Guo Jianqiang, deputy head of the Center for Hydrogeological and Geological Surveys at the Geological Survey Department of the People's Republic of China, it is expected that the first satellite will be launched in June 2022, and by the end of May 2023, all 36 satellites that will form a group will be launched.

The satellites will provide high-resolution images that will help to record millimeter geological deformations. This will make it possible to predict landslides, landslides, subsidence and other geological disasters and thereby increase the effectiveness of emergency response in cities
