SPACEX ORBCOMM FIRST MISSION
SpaceX’s customer for its ORBCOMM Generation 2 Mission 1 is the satellite communications provider ORBCOMM. In this flight, the Falcon 9 rocket will deliver six next generation OG2 satellites to an elliptical 750 x 615 km low-Earth orbit. The OG2 satellites are commercial telecommunications satellites. The ORBCOMM OG2 launch window will open at approximately 9:47 a.m. on May 10, 2014 from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. If all goes as planned, the OG2 satellites will be deployed one at a time, beginning approximately 15 minutes after liftoff. Satellite Payload OG2 SATELLITES The ORBCOMM OG2 mission will launch six OG2 satellites, the first six of a series of OG2 satellites launching on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 vehicle. Compared with ORBCOMM’s current constellation, the next generation OG2 satellites have advanced communications technologies, and are significantly larger, more capable, and more efficient. The satellites were built by Sierra Nevada Corporation and weigh approximately 170 kg each. The full series of OG2 satellites will be launched to low-Earth orbit.
