INTELSAT 29E is classified as:


NORAD ID: 41308
Int'l Code: 2016-004A
Perigee: 35,787.1 km
Apogee: 35,799.9 km
Inclination: 0.0 °
Period: 1,436.1 minutes
Semi major axis: 42164 km
RCS: Unknown
Launch date: January 27, 2016
Source: International Telecommunications Satellite Organization (ITSO)
Launch site: FRENCH GUIANA (FRGUI)

INTELSAT 29E communications platform, weighing more than 14,400 pounds (6.5 metric tons) at launch, is the first spacecraft to launch for Intelsat's Epic program, an initiative announced in 2012 to drastically boost the capacity and reach of the company's satellite network. INTELSAT 29E is located at 50 degrees west longitude, where the new satellite will replace aging Intelsat spacecraft launched in 2000. The satellite can route up to 25 gigabits of data every second through its sophisticated communications instrumentation, and INTELSAT 29E hosts the equivalent of 270 transponders in C-band, Ku-band and Ka-band frequencies. Each Intelsat Epic spacecraft has more capacity than an Air Force WGS satellite, which were designed more than a decade ago. Designed for a 15-year lifetime, INTELSAT 29E will support video and data distribution across South America with its C-band links, while its Ku-band covers a wide swath of the Americas, including aeronautical routes over the North Atlantic, where passengers will receive live television and broadband Internet thanks to INTELSAT 29E.
