Its predecessor "Yaogan IV" was launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern Gansu Province.

China is scheduled to launch a new remote sensing satellite "Yaogan V" on Monday at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province. The satellite is to be launched into the space on a Long March-4B carrier rocket "at an appropriate time", China News Service reports on Sunday.

At present, both the rocket and the satellite were in good condition and the preparation went on well, according to the launch center.

The satellite would be used for scientific research, land resources surveying, crop yield estimate and disaster prevention and relief.

Its predecessor "Yaogan IV" was launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern Gansu Province. "Yaogan III" was launched in Taiyuan on Nov. 12, 2007.

The "Yaogan I" and the "Yaogan II" satellites were launched in April 2006 and May 2007 respectively.
