  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 404km to 806km, with the average perigee being 640.0km from the Earth, while the apogees (point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 410km to 821km, with the average apogee being 658.0km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 101 minutes.


Highlights on some of the satellites constructed by Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd.:

COSMIC 2-1.

FORMOSAT-7/COSMIC-2 Satellite System

  Heaviest satellite launched by Taiwan/USA into space at 280 kg

COSMIC 2-1 is a government satellite operated by Taiwan's National Space Organization and National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Admistration (NOAA) (Taiwan/USA) for the purpose of earth observation (Meteorology).

Constructed by Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. (UK), it was launched into space using Falcon Heavy as the launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral on 25 June 2019. COSMIC 2-1 orbits around the Earth as a non-polar inclined LEO satellite.

With a launch mass of 280kg, COSMIC 2-1 is designed to operate in space for a lifetime of 5 years. It orbits around the Earth with the COSPAR ID 2019-036L and NORAD ID 44349.

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 709km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 721km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 8.47E-04 and it orbits at an inclination of 24 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.

DMC 3-1.

SSTL DMC3 / TripleSat Constellation

  Heaviest satellite launched by Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. into space at 447 kg

Operated by Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. of United Kingdom, DMC 3-1 is a commercial satellite launched for the purpose of earth observation (Optical Imaging).

Constructed by Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. (UK), it was launched into space using PSLV as the launch vehicle from Satish Dhawan Space Centre on 10 July 2015. DMC 3-1 orbits around the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite.

Designated with COSPAR ID 2015-032A and NORAD ID 40715, DMC 3-1 is designed to operate in space for a lifetime of 10 years. It has a launch mass of 447 kg.

Taking 98 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 636km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 663km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 1.92E-03 and it orbits at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
