YAOGAN 30 is a Chinese military spy satellite. Officially YAOGAN 30 is a remote sensing satellite that 'will be used for experiments, land surveys, crop yield estimates and disaster relief.' Western analysts believe the Yaogan satellites series is a fleet of Chinese intelligence-gathering spacecraft. The parameters of Yaogan 30's launch, including its launch site, rocket booster and orbit, match those of five previous launches in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2014. Those missions lofted high-resolution optical spy satellites into orbit, and experts believe YAOGAN 30 shares the same purpose.
