The Jilin 1 satellite has helped launch the Jilin province's advanced manufacturing drive, as well as providing precise data for firefighting and environmental protection. The first commercial remote sensing satellite of the Jilin series was launched in October 2015. Since then, 13 more satellites have been put into orbit.
The technological improvements of the Jilin 1 are representative of the province's innovation-driven growth strategy in recent years as it moves away from its old industrial base.
