LKW-1 (Ludikancha Weixing 1) is a very high-resolution Earth imaging satellite that will fly for the official purpose of "remote sensing exploration of land resources". However, as often seen with China’s space efforts, military spacecraft are often flown under the cover of civilian Earth observation and environmental monitoring missions. LKW-1 appears to be tied to the Yaogan reconnaissance satellite fleet through similar orbital parameters as electro-optical imaging satellites flown as part of the constellation.
