Two Five Year Plan Goals of the PRC

FYP 2011-2015 FYFP 2016-2020

1. NAVSATS 30 by 2020 on station in orbit as of 12-20-12 with 12-15 plus in place or more in place 2013

2. Remote sensing mapping Satellites As of 1-1-13, 10-15 years constellation in place

3. NOSS Maritime Ocean Surveillance September 2012 report by 2020, 4-sea color ship detection, 2 ocean currents, 2 radar cross confirmation targeting 4. Meteorological Satellite constellation Oct 2012 report by 2020, 22 planned constellation, 12 since 1988 with 13-14 in place Satellites in 10 years 14 more satellites.

4. As of 2008 China Meteorological Administration (CMA) intended to launch by the end of two FYP's down the road ending in December 2020 a total of 22 meteorological satellites. Within that number the FY-2's will constitute four of the launches = 1 every year 2008-2014 six new FY-4's launches also planned. = 1 every year 2014-2020 FY-3's will utilize 12 planned launches = 1 per year 2008-2020

According to Cen Zheng, rocket system commander-in-chief of the Long March-3A mission, 2018 will see 35 launches of the Long March rocket series, with 14 missions carried out by Long March-3A rockets and six by Long March-3C rockets. These missions focus on sending Beidou satellites into space to form a network for the domestic BeiDou Navigation Satellite and the launch of the Chang'e-4 lunar probe later this year. "Eight of the 14 Long March-3A rockets to be sent into space in 2018 will carry twin BeiDou-3 satellites," Cen said. "The Long March-3A rocket family will fulfil 40 tasks from 2018 to 2020. We have a tight schedule."

Throughout 2018, Long March-3A rockets will send 18 BeiDou-3 satellites into space, enabling BeiDou system to provide navigation and positioning services to countries along the Belt and Road. Long March-3C rockets will send the Pakistan Remote Sensing Satellites and the China-France Oceanography Satellite into space this year.

The country's new generations of rockets -- the Long March-5 series and Long March-7 series -- are also prepared for the upcoming missions. Launches of Long March-5 have been scheduled for the latter half of this year in preparation for China's lunar probe and Mars probe missions.
