Primary use /spaceflight/satellite/primary_use /spaceflight/satellite_type

The primary use this satellite is designed for.

reverse
Orbit type /spaceflight/satellite/orbit_type /spaceflight/satellite_orbit_type

The kind of orbit that this satellite is in.

master
Orbit period /spaceflight/satellite/orbit_period /type/float never_assert min

The length of time it takes the satellite to complete one revolution.

unique
Speed on orbit /spaceflight/satellite/speed_on_orbit /type/float never_assert km/s

The satellite's speed in its orbit.

unique
Altitude /spaceflight/satellite/altitude /type/float never_assert km
