YAOGAN 25C is one of the 3 Yaogan satellites launched on 10 December 2014 from the Jiuquan space base in northwest China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region. China's official Xinhua news agency described the Yaogan 25 payload as a single satellite, which state media reported was released into the planned orbit by the Long March 4C rocket. Tracking data from the U.S. Air Force's Space Surveillance Network recorded multiple satellites in an orbit nearly 1,100 kilometers, or about 680 miles, above Earth at an inclination of 63.4 degrees. The satellites are believed to monitor worldwide naval activity. Officially the satellites are "mainly used for scientific experiments, natural resource surveys, crop yield estimates and disaster relief" (Xinhua).
