  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 33,066km to 35,784km, with the average perigee being 35,681.2km from the Earth, while the apogees (point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 35,725km to 35,810km, with the average apogee being 35,793.3km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 1,436 minutes.

  Satellite Mass

The launch masses (include fuel) of the satellites range from 1,980kg to 5,857kg, while the dry masses (excluding fuel) of the satellites range from 860kg to 2,600kg.


Highlights on some of the satellites constructed by Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems:

Intelsat 901.

MEV-1 and IS-901 Mission Profile | Intelsat

  Second heaviest satellite launched by Atlas 2AS into space at 4,723 kg

A commercial satellite, Intelsat 901 is operated by Intelsat S.A. of USA for the purpose of communications.

Constructed by Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems (USA), it was launched into space on 9 June 2001 using Atlas 2AS as the launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral. Intelsat 901 orbits around the Earth as a GEO satellite.

Designated with COSPAR ID 2001-024A and NORAD ID 26824, Intelsat 901 is designed to operate in space for a lifetime of 13 years. It has a launch mass of 4,723 kg and dry mass of 1,972 kg.

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 35,775km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 35,798km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 2.73E-04.

With generated usable power of 10000 watts, Intelsat 901 orbits along the longitude of -28 degrees.

JCSat 17.

JCSAT-17 and GEO-KOMPSAT-2B satellites separation

  Heaviest satellite launched by Japan into space at 5,857 kg

JCSat 17 is a commercial satellite operated by Sky Perfect JSAT Corporation (Japan) for the purpose of communications.

Delivered via Ariane 5 (launch vehicle) from Guiana Space Center, it was launched into space on 18 February 2020 and orbits the Earth as a GEO satellite. JCSat 17 was constructed by Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems (USA).

JCSat 17 has a launch mass of 5,857 kg and is expected to have a operational lifetime of 15 years. It navigates with the COSPAR ID 2020-013A and NORAD ID 45245.

JCSat 17 orbits along the longitude of 136 degrees at an inclination of 7 degrees.

The satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 35,773km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 35,800km. Its orbit has an eccentricity of 3.20E-04 and it takes 1,436 minutes to orbit the Earth.
