China’s Central Television said in a statement on Wednesday, “China launched the first reserve satellite for the national navigation system, Beidou, to join this satellite with 55 other satellites belonging to the system operating in fixed orbits around the Earth.”
“The backup satellite will increase the reliability of the navigation system and help users locate geographic locations with high speed and accuracy,” the statement added.
According to the available information, the satellite was sent to Earth’s orbits on board a Chinese Long March 3-B rocket launched from the Sichang Space Center located in Sichuan Province, southwest China.
