Proton - Dataset of Satellites Launched
This dataset contains 25 entries.

  Overview

This is a dataset of satellites launched via Proton, based on UCS Satellite Database compiled by the Union of Concerned Scientist (UCS).

Most satellites launched via Proton are intended for commercial use (68.0%) and for the purpose of communications (84.0%).Majority of these satellites are GEO satellites, with around 23 (92.0%) launched so far.
