Highlights on some of the satellites launched via Soyuz-2.1b:

OneWeb-0013.

  Heaviest satellite launched by OneWeb Satellites into space at 148 kg

OneWeb-0013 is a commercial satellite operated by OneWeb Satellites (United Kingdom) for the purpose of communications.

Constructed by OneWeb Satellites/Airbus (UK), it was launched into space using Soyuz-2.1b as the launch vehicle from Baikonur Cosmodrome on 6 February 2020. OneWeb-0013 orbits around the Earth as a polar LEO satellite.

OneWeb-0013 has a launch mass of 148 kg and is expected to have a operational lifetime of 5 years. It navigates with the COSPAR ID 2020-008A and NORAD ID 45131.

With an orbital eccentricity of 3.29E-04, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 1,215km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 1,220km. It takes 94 minutes to orbit the Earth at an inclination of 87 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
