BEIJING — A network of remote sensing satellite ground stations that cover all of China’s territory and 70 percent of Asia passed its final acceptance examination on May 31.

The network is headquartered in Beijing and features three ground stations in a suburb in Beijing, Kashgar in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region and Sanya in Hainan province, respectively.

It will be used to support various remote-sensing systems, especially for the western part of the country and the South China Sea, according to the examination committee.

The project began in 2007.
