GAOFEN 4 is a Chinese geostationary satellite fitted with a powerful telescope to collect nearly continuous imagery of the Asia-Pacific, an apparently unique capability that could help track foreign naval activity. The satellite will enter service over the Asia-Pacific, with its imaging telescope able to observe a swath of the planet from the Persian Gulf to Australia, centered on China and Southeast Asia. Gaofen 4's staring imager can spot objects as small as 50 meters (164 feet), a resolution that allows the satellite to see an oil tanker steaming across the ocean. At night, an infrared camera aboard Gaofen 4 can capture less detailed imagery with a resolution of about 400 meters, or 1,300 feet. Gaofen 4 is designed for an eight-year lifetime.
