  About Galileo FOC FM19

  Heaviest satellite launched by Ariane 5 ES into space at 715 kg

Designed for navigation and global positioning, Galileo FOC FM19 is a commercial satellite operated by European Space Agency (ESA) (ESA).

Delivered via Ariane 5 ES (launch vehicle) from Guiana Space Center, it was launched into space on 25 July 2018 and orbits the Earth as a non-polar inclined MEO satellite. Galileo FOC FM19 was constructed by OHB-System GmbH, SSTL (Germany/UK).

With a launch mass of 715kg, Galileo FOC FM19 is designed to operate in space for a lifetime of 12 years. It orbits around the Earth with the COSPAR ID 2018-060C and NORAD ID 43566.

Taking 840 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 23,233km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 23,250km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 2.87E-04 and it orbits at an inclination of 56 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
