To ensure good service, CMA decides to use FY-2E as operational satellite to replace present FY-2C, which is one year more than its designed life. FY-2C will stop service at 00:00(UTC) on November 25, 2009 and FY-2E will provide the same service as FY-2C at same time. Products from FY-2E will need one month time for validation.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by.
