Long March flight 4C is a government flight designated “Top Secret”.

Officially designated as an optical remote sensing satellite built by SAST.

The long march of 4C begins its mission in low earth orbit. It is located at an altitude of 200 to 2000 kilometers. Drives to LEO have the lowest energy and are the easiest to get to. A spacecraft takes about 100 minutes to orbit the Earth and can travel at about 7 km/s. Radio contact with the ground station is a maximum of 15 minutes round trip. Low Earth orbit is primarily used for manned spaceflight, but also for spy satellites, astronomical satellites, as well as Earth exploration and meteorological satellites, amateur radio satellites, global communications systems, and technology research and testing satellites.
