  About RCM-1

  Heaviest satellite launched by Canadian Space Agency into space at 1,430 kg

A government satellite, RCM-1 is operated by Canadian Space Agency of Canada for the purpose of earth observation (Radar Imaging).

Delivered via Falcon 9 (launch vehicle) from Vandenberg AFB, it was launched into space on 12 June 2019 and orbits the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite. RCM-1 was constructed by MDA Corporation (Canada).

Designed with an operational lifetime of 7 years, RCM-1 has a launch mass of 1,430 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2019-033A and NORAD ID 44322.

Taking 97 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 584km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 604km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 1.44E-03 and it orbits at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
