The China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite (CSES) is the first platform of China Geophysical fields observation satellite mission (Zhangheng mission) , with the main objectives to monitor the global geomagnetic field, ionosphere background environment and possible abnormal signals with strong natural disasters. 

CSES operates in a Sun‐synchronous polar orbit with a high inclination degree of 97.4° at an altitude around 507 km, measuring the electromagnetic field, energetic particles and ionosphere plasma parameters. The first-hand scientific observations show that CSES has recorded a number of interesting natural events, showing its good inflight observing capability on natural phenomenon. 

In this presentation, we mainly introduce the operation status of satellite platform, payloads; as well as the first-hand scientific results obtained from CSES including the geomagnetic field modeling, the electromagnetic waves, the geomagnetic event and earthquake activities et c. The follow-up plans for the Zhangheng mission will be briefly presented.
