The Argentina’s Adelph-1 constellation gained ten new NuSat Earth observation spacecraft (NuSats 9 – 18) in orbit when they were launched by a Chinese Long March 6 (CZ-6) from the Tiayuan launch site at 0319 GMT on 6 November 2020. The 37.5 kg spacecraft were built by and are operated by Satellogic S.A. The Nusat spacecraft  can provide real-lime still and video imaging in visible and infrared light up to 1m resolution. Also aboard was the 70 kg Tianyan-05 satellite.

Also aboard was the Beihang Kongshi 1 aircraft tracking research satellite built by the Tianyi Research InstItute along with the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA) for SpaceTY (the Commercial arm of Tianyi Research Institute) and the BY70-3 cubesat built by the Taiyuan Jinshan Middle School carrying an imager and an amateur radio payload. The spacecraft were launched into a circa 476 x 463 km sun-synchronous orbit at 97.3 degrees inclination. (Orbital data from US Space Command via Jonathan McDowell).
