Two satellites for technological experiments were sent into space by a Kuaizhou-1A, or KZ-1A, carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center on 31 August. The rocket blasted off at 7:41 h BJT and sent the two satellites into their planned orbit. One of the newly launched satellites was developed by the Innovation Academy for Microsatellites of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and will be used for microgravity technology experiments.The other satellite, developed by commercial satellite manufacturer Spacety Co., Ltd. (Changsha) will be used to test solar sail technology.

China will send a remote sensing satellite into orbit for polar climate and environment observation in September. The project was initiated by scientists from the Beijing Normal University and developed by Shenzhen Aerospace Dongfanghong Development Ltd. It will be operated by Chinese University Corporation for Polar Research. The satellite called "Ice Pathfinder" (Code: BNU-1), which weighs only 10 kg, is equipped with high-resolution cameras that can achieve full coverage of the Antarctic and Arctic in five days and strengthen monitoring of sea ice drifts and ice-shelf calving. In addition, it has an automatic identification system for vessels to navigate through parts or the entirety of the polar regions.
