At 06:58 on June 10th,Fengyun No. 2 09 star which was developed by theShanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology was successfully point fixed at 94.1 degree of east longitude. It was named FY-2H star.

FY-2H star is located at the same longitude of Kashgar, Xinjiang above equator.It is focused to serve the Belt and Road initiative and provide services to west area of China and the counties and regions along the Belt and Road.

Natural disaster is a severe threat to the sustainable development of the Beit and Road area. In Aug,2017,FY-2E star perceived the sign of strong rainfall ahead of time and alarmed timely to avoid casualties. The statistics of international disaster database shows that the disaster loss of the area along the Belt and Road is over two times of the global average value, of which, meteorological disaster accounts for most. There are many depopulated zones with mountains, plateaus, deserts and oceans whichcause meteorological observation blind spots and become the weak point of whether forecasting. The meteorological satellite moving in the outer space could operate all-weather, stereoscopic observation and clearly perceive the changes of wind and cloud and effectively make up the weak point of ground-based observation.
