Over the past 60 years, China has made fruitful achievements in the field of ocean microwave remote sensing satellite technology. A long-term plan has now been formulated for the development of Chinese ocean satellites, as well as the construction of a constellation of ocean dynamic environmental and ocean surveillance satellites. These will gradually form China's ocean monitoring network from space, thereby playing important roles in future ocean resource and environmental monitoring, marine

In this review manuscript, the developmental history of ocean microwave satellites and the development status of oceanic microwave remote sensing satellites in China are reviewed. In addition, China's achievements in the field of oceanic microwave remote sensing satellite technology are summarized, and the future development of China's ocean microwave remote sensing satellite program is analysed.
