YAOGAN 29 is a Chinese radar reconnaissance satellite. Space experts believe the Yaogan name is a cover for Chinese military satellites, and the details of the launch of Yaogan 29 match three previous rocket launches, which lifted off in 2006, 2007 and 2010 from the same launch site, aboard the same type of booster and placed their payloads into nearly identical orbits. The similarities mean Yaogan 29 is likely a successor to the Yaogan 1, Yaogan 3 and Yaogan 10 satellites, which analysts say carried high-resolution radar mapping instruments for all-weather reconnaissance.
