Delivered via Dnepr (launch vehicle) from Baikonur Cosmodrome, it was launched into space on 8 April 2010 and orbits the Earth as a polar LEO satellite. Cryosat-2 was constructed by EADS Astrium (France/UK/Germany/Spain).

Designed with an operational lifetime of 3 years, Cryosat-2 has a launch mass of 720 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2010-013A and NORAD ID 36508.

Taking 99 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 713km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 724km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 7.76E-04 and it orbits at an inclination of 92 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
