The Long March 2C carrier rocket for launching missions is China’s first “Gold Medal Rocket” developed by the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology affiliated to China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. It is used to launch low-orbit and sun-synchronous orbit satellites, and can perform missions at the three launch sites of Xichang, Jiuquan and Taiyuan.
In this mission, the rocket fairing is equipped with an altimeter combination to measure the height change and some attitude information during the separation of the fairing and re-entry into the atmosphere, and continue to promote the "parachute-based fairing debris landing zone control technology" , To provide a reference for the subsequent design and improvement of the rocket landing zone control plan.
This mission is the 369th flight of the Long March series of carrier rockets.
