  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 473km to 1,885km, with the average perigee being 1,318.5km from the Earth, while the apogees (point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 476km to 2,165km, with the average apogee being 1,357.5km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 127 minutes.

  Satellite Mass

The launch masses (include fuel) of the satellites range from 53kg to 2,300kg, while the dry masses (excluding fuel) of the satellites range from 53kg to 2,146kg.


Highlights on some of the satellites launched via Rokot:

Sentinel 3A.

Meet the Satellite: Sentinel-3

  Heaviest satellite launched by EUMETSAT (European Organization For The Exploitation Of Meteorological Satellites) into space at 2,300 kg

Operated by EUMETSAT (European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites) of ESA, Sentinel 3A is a government satellite launched for the purpose of earth observation (Earth Science).

Constructed by Thales Alenia Space (France), it was launched into space using Rokot as the launch vehicle from Plesetsk Cosmodrome on 16 February 2016. Sentinel 3A orbits around the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite.

With a launch mass of 2,300kg and a dry mass of 2,146kg, Sentinel 3A is designed to operate in space for a lifetime of 7 years. It orbits around the Earth with the COSPAR ID 2016-011A and NORAD ID 41335.

Taking 101 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 802km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 804km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 1.39E-04 and it orbits at an inclination of 99 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.

Gonets M-26.

Rokot launches Blits-M and Gonets-M satellites

  Heaviest satellite launched by Gonets Satcom into space at 280 kg

Operated by Gonets Satcom of Russia, Gonets M-26 is a commercial satellite launched for the purpose of communications.

A polar LEO satellite, it was launched into space using Rokot as the launch vehicle from Plesetsk Cosmodrome on 26 December 2019. Gonets M-26 was constructed by ISS Reshetnev (Russia).

With a launch mass of 280kg, Gonets M-26 is designed to operate in space for a lifetime of 7 years. It orbits around the Earth with the COSPAR ID 2019-096C and NORAD ID 44907.

With an orbital eccentricity of 4.45E-04, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 1,500km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 1,507km. It takes 116 minutes to orbit the Earth.

With generated usable power of 120 watts, Gonets M-26 orbits at an inclination of 83 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
