A satellite is not projected with escape velocity , if it is projected with escape velocity then it will escape the gravitational field,

the satellite is taken up using a rocket which has a constant thrust towards the ground. the satellite is just left in space making it move with the same orbital velocity all the time , it is just left in an orbit , so the gravitational force from the earth keeps the satellite in its orbit areound the earth .

 

Also other factors like air current direction , air resistance , and resistance and each layer is counted , so the actual escape velocity is more than 11.2kmps because when we calculate escape velocity we don't take into account any of the external opposing forces .

 

Hope that helps
