  Which launch site has launched the most satellites delivered via Dnepr to space?

The launch site that has delivered the most satellites launched via Dnepr to space is Dombarovsky Air Base which has launched 37 satellites (60.7%).

  What is the most common type of satellite orbit?

Sun-Synchronous orbit is the most common type of orbit for satellites launched via Dnepr (55 satellites - 90.2%).

  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 506km to 824km, with the average perigee being 616.4km from the Earth, while the apogees (point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 507km to 850km, with the average apogee being 681.1km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 101 minutes.

  Satellite Mass

The launch masses (include fuel) of the satellites range from 1kg to 1,400kg, while the dry masses (excluding fuel) of the satellites range from 1kg to 670kg.


Highlights on some of the satellites launched via Dnepr:

Hodoyoshi-3.

Sun-rising (17th Oct.2014), Hodoyoshi-3 Wide Angle Camera

Designed for technology development, Hodoyoshi-3 is a government satellite operated by University of Tokyo and NESTRA (Japan).

Delivered via Dnepr (launch vehicle) from Dombarovsky Air Base, it was launched into space on 19 June 2014 and orbits the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite. Hodoyoshi-3 was constructed by University of Tokyo (Japan).

Hodoyoshi-3 has a launch mass of 60 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2014-033F and NORAD ID 40015.

With an orbital eccentricity of 3.78E-03, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 613km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 666km. It takes 98 minutes to orbit the Earth.

With generated usable power of 50 watts, Hodoyoshi-3 orbits at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.

Cryosat-2.

CryoSat and climate change

Operated by European Space Agency (ESA) of ESA, Cryosat-2 is a government satellite launched for the purpose of earth observation (Radar Imaging).

A polar LEO satellite, it was launched into space using Dnepr as the launch vehicle from Baikonur Cosmodrome on 8 April 2010. 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.

AprizeSat 3.

Successfull AprizeSat Launch

  Heaviest satellite launched by USA/Argentina into space at 12 kg

Designed for communications and maritime tracking (Automatic Identification System (AIS)), AprizeSat 3 is a commercial satellite operated by Aprize Satellite, Argentina (USA/Argentina).

Delivered via Dnepr (launch vehicle) from Baikonur Cosmodrome, it was launched into space on 29 July 2009 and orbits the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite. AprizeSat 3 was constructed by SpaceQuest (USA).

AprizeSat 3 has a launch mass of 12 kg (dry mass at 12 kg) and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2009-041F and NORAD ID 35686.

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 559km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 662km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 7.38E-03 and it orbits at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
