Highlights on some of the satellites constructed by Boeing Satellite Systems:
Third heaviest satellite launched into space in 2019 at 6,956 kg
JCSat18/Kacific 1 is a commercial satellite operated by Sky Perfect JSAT Corporation and Kacific (Japan/Singapore) for the purpose of communications.
Delivered via Falcon 9 (launch vehicle) from Cape Canaveral, it was launched into space on 17 December 2019 and orbits the Earth as a GEO satellite. JCSat18/Kacific 1 was constructed by Boeing Satellite Systems (USA).
Designed with an operational lifetime of 15 years, JCSat18/Kacific 1 has a launch mass of 6,956 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2019-091A and NORAD ID 44868.
With an orbital eccentricity of 2.49E-04, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 35,779km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 35,800km. It takes 1,436 minutes to orbit the Earth along the longitude of 150 degrees.
