Abstract : Aerospace visible light film systems were among the earliest space remote sensing systems to be developed in China. They have been applied very well. To this date, Institute Number 508 has successfully developed three models for two generations of aerospace visible light cameras. This not only makes China the third nation in the world to master space remote sensing technology, it also puts recoverable remote sensing satellites among the first kinds of first and second generation application satellites to be launched and achieve a breakthrough in China.
