The TanSat is China's first scientific experimental satellite for monitoring the amount of global atmospheric carbon dioxide. The successful development of the TanSat and it's subsequent on-orbitstable operation will enable China to initially form monitoring capabilities of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration in China and other key areas even in the global, which can fill the gap in China's greenhouse gas detection technology.
