YAOGAN 15 is believed to be a surveillance satellite. The spacecraft will be used to conduct scientific experiments, carry out land surveys, monitor crop yields and aid in reducing and preventing natural disasters according to Xinhua. But Yaogan satellites are believed by independent experts to be military spacecraft with observation and surveillance sensors. Yaogan 15 may carry a radar payload designed for all-weather, day-and-night imaging of locations around the world. Other Yaogan satellites likely feature advanced high-resolution optical cameras.
