  2. Launch of French-Chinese CFOSat satellite- CNES and CNRS join forces to study climate change in the world’s oceans

    Publishing date:

    October 22, 2018

    The French-Chinese CFOSat satellite will be launched on Monday 29 October atop a Chinese Long March 2C vehicle from the Jiuquan launch base in Inner Mongolia. This science mission to study ocean surface winds and waves is the first joint project pursued under French-Chinese space cooperation. Developed by CNES and the China National Space Administration (CNSA), the satellite will carry two radar instruments: SWIM (Surface Waves Investigation and Monitoring), developed by France, which will survey the length, height and direction of waves; and SCAT (wind SCATterometer), developed by China, which will measure the strength and direction of winds. The two instruments will enable measurements of winds and waves to be acquired simultaneously for the first time. CFOSat will thus characterize the dynamics of waves and how they interact with surface winds more comprehensively than ever before.

  13. Lancement du satellite franco-chinois CFOSat- Le CNES et le CNRS unissent leur expertise pour l’étude du changement climatique sur les océans

    Publishing date:

    October 22, 2018

    Le satellite franco-chinois CFOSat sera lancé lundi 29 octobre 2018 par le lanceur chinois Longue Marche 2C depuis la base chinoise de Jiuquan, en Mongolie Intérieure. Cette mission scientifique pour étudier le vent et les vagues à la surface des océans est la première réalisation concrète née de la coopération spatiale franco-chinoise. Développé conjointement par le CNES et la China National Space Administration (CNSA), le satellite embarquera deux instruments radar : SWIM (Surface Waves Investigation and Monitoring), développé par la France, qui surveillera la longueur, la hauteur et la direction des vagues et SCAT (wind SCATterometer), sous responsabilité chinoise, qui mesurera l’intensité et la direction des vents. Grâce à ces deux instruments, ces mesures du vent et des vagues seront pour la première fois simultanées. CFOSat caractérisera la dynamique des vagues et leurs interactions avec les vents de surface de façon plus complète que jamais.
