Heaviest satellite launched by Singapore into space at 400 kg
A commercial satellite, TeLEOS 1 is operated by AgilSpace of Singapore for the purpose of earth observation (Optical Imaging).
Constructed by ST Electronics Ltd. (Singapore), it was launched into space on 16 December 2015 using PSLV C29 as the launch vehicle from Satish Dhawan Space Centre. TeLEOS 1 orbits around the Earth as a equatorial LEO satellite.
Designated with COSPAR ID 2015-077D and NORAD ID 41169, TeLEOS 1 is designed to operate in space for a lifetime of 5 years. It has a launch mass of 400 kg.
Taking 96 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 535km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 550km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 1.08E-03 and it orbits at an inclination of 15 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
