On June 20, Mr. Zhuang Guotai, Administrator of China Meteorological Administration (CMA), announced that the data products of FENGYUN-3E and FENGYUN-4B meteorological satellites will be shared with global users on the occasion of the 75th session of the Executive Council of World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
He remarked that CMA will continue to promote the international application of FY satellites as an action to contribute to disaster preparedness and response to climate change.
Pro. Petteri Taalas expressed his high regard and gratitude to the operation of FY meteorological satellites and the provision of high quality products in response.
FY-3E is the first early morning orbit meteorological satellite for civil use in the world. Filling in the observing gap in the early morning, FY-3E will join FY-3C and FY-3D to realize the coverage of early morning, morning, and afternoon orbits. FY-4B is the first operational satellite among China's new-generation geostationary meteorological satellites series. FY-4B has updated payloads and improved performance based on FY-4A. (Jun. 22)
