  • USA 256 - . Payload: Navstar 71 / GPS SVN 68 / IIF-7 / Capella. Mass: 1,630 kg (3,590 lb). Nation: USA. Agency: ULAL. Spacecraft Bus: Navstar. Spacecraft: GPS Block 2F. USAF Sat Cat: 40105 . COSPAR: 2014-045A. Apogee: 20,479 km (12,725 mi). Perigee: 20,451 km (12,707 mi). Inclination: 55.0000 deg. Period: 729.47 min. The navigation satellite, dubbed 'Capella', reached a 167 km x 20,260 km x 55 deg transfer orbit at 03:40 GMT. A second Centaur burn at 06:40 GMT circularized the orbit prior to release of the satellite..

  • Worldview-3 - . Mass: 2,800 kg (6,100 lb). Nation: USA. Agency: ULAL. Spacecraft: BCP-5000. USAF Sat Cat: 40115 . COSPAR: 2014-048A. Apogee: 614 km (381 mi). Perigee: 612 km (380 mi). Inclination: 97.9900 deg. Period: 96.97 min.

    Commercial imaging satellite in a 10:15 local time of descending node sun-synchronous orbit. Ground resolution of 0.31 m panchromatic, and 1.1 m multispectral. After releasing the satellite the Centaur stage restarted and used up its extra propellant by accelerating to an escape trajectory to solar orbit. WV-3 had an imager with 0.3m ground resolution in addition to multispectral and 3.7-micron IR cameras. Digital Globe was formerly EarthWatch Inc, and merged with the former Space Imaging Inc. (GeoEye) in 2012, which itself absorbed EOSAT in 1996 and OrbImage in 2006, completing the consolidation of the first generation of US commercial imaging companies.
