China sent a new meteorological satellite into planned orbit from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan Province, The Xinhua News Agency reports.

The satellite, Fengyun-4B (FY-4B), was launched by a Long March-3B rocket.

"This was the 372nd flight mission of the Long March rocket series", the launch center said.

The first of China's new-generation meteorological satellites in geostationary orbit, the FY-4B will be used in the fields of weather analysis and forecasting, and environmental and disaster monitoring.

The satellite and rocket were developed by the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology and the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology, respectively. Both belong to the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

The China Meteorological Administration is responsible for the construction and operation of the satellite's ground application system.
