Developed by China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, HY-2C will collect data about the ocean in general terms and link up with previously launched Hy-2B and HY-2D satellites for ocean observation.

The launch was the 347th mission of the Long March rocket series.

China sent 9 satellites into space last week.
