This new joint committee was already hinted at in 2021 after BRICS members signed an agreement on the Cooperation on BRICS Remote Sensing Satellite Constellation.

The sat formation is specifically made by state-owned satellites, such as Gaofen-6 and Ziyuan III 02 (China), Kanopus-V type (Russia), Resourcesat-2 and 2A (India), and CBERS-4 (China and Brazil).

Other Space Efforts by China
Aside from leading the new BRICS joint committee, CGTN reported that China is also busy exploring outer space and achieving major space breakthroughs.

One of these is the development of a new renewable energy-storing coating material that can absorb heat from the sun during the daytime. After that, it will release the heat energy to store cold energy at night.
