That year is 2021, which saw 76 satellites launched.

  Which rocket has delivered the most satellites from Swarm Technologies to space?

The rocket that has delivered the most satellites to space is Falcon 9 which has delivered 67 satellites (55.8%).

  Which launch site has launched the most satellites from Swarm Technologies to space?

The launch site that has launched the most satellites to space is Cape Canaveral which has launched 64 satellites (53.3%).

  What is the most common type of satellite orbit?

Sun-Synchronous orbit is the most common type of orbit (119 satellites - 99.2%).

  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 446km to 573km, with the average perigee being 511.2km from the Earth, while the apogees (point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 460km to 590km, with the average apogee being 527.9km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 96 minutes.


SWARM: A New Paradigm for Communication Satellites

  Heaviest satellite launched by Swarm Technologies into space at 2 kg

Designed for communications, SpaceBEE-100 is a commercial satellite operated by Swarm Technologies (USA).

Constructed by Swarm Technologies (USA), it was launched into space on 30 June 2021 using Falcon 9 as the launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral. SpaceBEE-100 orbits around the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite.

Designated with COSPAR ID 2021-059E and NORAD ID 48883, SpaceBEE-100 is designed to operate in space for a lifetime of 2 years. It has a launch mass of 2 kg.

With an orbital eccentricity of 1.74E-03, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 512km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 536km. It takes 94 minutes to orbit the Earth at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
