Third heaviest satellite launched into space in 2019 at 6,956 kg
Designed for communications, JCSat18/Kacific 1 is a commercial satellite operated by Sky Perfect JSAT Corporation and Kacific (Japan/Singapore).
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).
JCSat18/Kacific 1 has a launch mass of 6,956 kg and is expected to have a operational lifetime of 15 years. It navigates with the COSPAR ID 2019-091A and NORAD ID 44868.
Taking 1,436 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 35,779km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 35,800km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 2.49E-04 and it orbits along the Earth longitude of 150 degrees.
Compare JCSat18/Kacific 1 with TIBA-1 from Egypt.
