  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 1,210km to 35,788km, with the average perigee being 32,688.5km from the Earth, while the apogees (point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 20,188km to 38,740km, with the average apogee being 33,348.6km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 1,439 minutes.

  Satellite Mass

The launch masses (include fuel) of the satellites range from 1,500kg to 8,000kg, while the dry masses (excluding fuel) of the satellites range from 750kg to 4,000kg.


Highlights on some of the satellites constructed by Boeing Satellite Systems:

JCSat18/Kacific 1.

Boeing-built JCSAT-18/Kacific1 Satellite

  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.
