A commercial satellite, Dove-4s-1 is operated by Planet Labs, Inc. of USA for the purpose of earth observation (Optical Imaging).
A sun-synchronous LEO satellite, it was launched into space using Falcon 9 as the launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral on 24 January 2021. Dove-4s-1 was constructed by Planet Labs, Inc. (USA).
Dove-4s-1 has a launch mass of 4 kg and is expected to have a operational lifetime of 3 years. It navigates with the COSPAR ID 2021-006ED and NORAD ID 47543.
Taking 95 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 519km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 535km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 1.16E-03 and it orbits at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
