China launched the CBERS-4 satellite, jointly developed with Brazil, on Sunday from the Taiyuan base by Long March-4B rocket, the milestone 200th flight for the Long March rocket family and the fifth joint mission for BRICS members China-Brazil.

China Brazil Earth Resources Satellite – is a series of remote sensing satellites built by Brazil and China.

The rocket blasted off at 11:26 am (Beijing time) and lifted the earth resource satellite into its scheduled orbit, according to the Taiyuan satellite launch center in north China’s Shanxi province.

CBERS-4 is one of the satellites of the Chinese-Brazilian Earth Resource Satellite (CBERS) joint program which began in 1988.

Such satellites are used in the monitoring, planning and management of land, forestry, water conservancy, environmental protection and agriculture.

Brazil’s space program is seeking to reduce the country’s dependence on US and European space equipment.

Sunday’s mission was the 200th flight for the Long March since April 24, 1970 when a Long March-1 carried China’s first satellite, Dongfanghong-1, into space.
