Since the sea satellites separated from the earth resource satellites,it had been well-developed for several decades and contributed a lot to strength to the marine monitoring and ocean studying.In the paper,the evolution process of seasats has been presented,including the characteristics and missions of the sea satellites and the payloads as well as the developing trend and so on.At the end,the paper puts forwards the referenced opinions for the analysis of the Chinese developing requirement and key technology.
