Designed for communications, SES-12 is a commercial satellite operated by SES S.A. (Luxembourg).
Constructed by Airbus Defense and Space (France/UK/Germany), it was launched into space on 4 June 2018 using Falcon 9 as the launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral. SES-12 orbits around the Earth as a GEO satellite.
Designed with an operational lifetime of 15 years, SES-12 has a launch mass of 5,300 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2018-049A and NORAD ID 43488.
Taking 1,436 minutes to orbit the Earth, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 35,785km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 35,785km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 0.00E+00.
With generated usable power of 15000 watts, SES-12 orbits along the longitude of 95 degrees.
