China to launch 120 satellites

BEIJING (PTI): China will launch about 120 satellites to meet the country's requirements in communication, space infrastructure and navigation sectors.

"We will focus on building a self-controlled national space infrastructure that can operate continuously and stably for a long time," said Yang Baohua, deputy general manager of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation said on Monday.

However, Yang did not specify the period of time over which the launches will span.

The Communist nation will launch about 70 remote sensing satellites to detect the near-earth space environment and predict extreme events, beside about 20 communication satellites to meet communication demand in national security and public services.

In addition, China will launch about 30 navigation satellites to provide accurate and reliable global positioning and navigation services, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

The Chinese economy will continue to record relatively high growth, generating more demand for aerospace technologies, Yang said at an international aviation and aerospace forum held in south China's Zhuhai city.
