Notes: Orbit refers to the type of orbit the satellite makes over the Earth. All of these are near-polar, sun-synchronous. Altitude refers to the height of the satellite orbit above the Earth's mean sea level, in kilometers. Inclination refers to the angle of an orbit compared to the equatorial plane, in degrees. Eq.Crossing refers to the time of day a satellite crosses the equator.
