YAOGAN 17A is classified as:


NORAD ID: 39239
Int'l Code: 2013-046A
Perigee: 939.0 km
Apogee: 1,255.3 km
Inclination: 63.4 °
Period: 107.0 minutes
Semi major axis: 7468 km
RCS: Unknown
Launch date: September 1, 2013
Source: People's Republic of China (PRC)
Launch site: Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, China (JSC)

YAOGAN 17A will reportedly conduct scientific experiments, carry out land surveys, monitor crop yields and aid in preventing natural disasters. But analysts believe the launch's passengers were three intelligence-gathering satellites. Yaogan 17's altitude and inclination match the orbits of two other Chinese launches in 2010 and 2012. Each of those launches deployed three satellites in orbit, and U.S. military tracking data indicate Sunday's launch also released multiple spacecraft after arriving in space.
