YAOGAN 28 is a government-owned surveillance satellite. Officially, the satellite will be used for experiments, land surveys, crop yield estimates and disaster relief, but it is believed that Yaogan codename is a cover for Chinese military spy satellites, and the specifics of Yaogan 28's launch match a mission launched in May 2012, which took off at the same launch time - to the minute - with the same type of Long March 4B rocket from Taiyuan. Western experts believe the Yaogan 28 satellite, and its predecessor Yaogan 14 launched in 2012, are high-resolution optical reconnaissance missions.
