China is planning to launch a constellation of 192 remote sensing satellites by 2021, reports China Central Television.

Artificial intelligence technology will process the images captured by the satellites, which will have sensors with multiple resolutions. This will allow poor quality images to be filtered out so that only useful data is beamed back to earth.

Scientists working on the project are also attempting to enable the constellation to be self-piloting.

When complete, the project is expected to provide better data for environmental monitoring, disaster prevention and mitigation, and traffic management.
