Q1 - TBD - Rocket 3.3 (Astra) - Kodiak LP-3B
July - commercial payload - Rocket 4.0 (Astra) - Kodiak LP-3B (or Summer)

Q1 is canceled. Last statement by Chris Kemp was: "I think the next fight will be a commercial flight this summer with a payload on it."

Also, they are staying with the Rocket 3 design for now: "We’re ramping up production on this rocket. It’ll be called Rocket 3.3. And we’ll make lots of 3.3’s."

NET April 2 (TBD)  - CST-100 Starliner (unmanned test) (Boe-OFT 2) - Atlas V N22 (AV-082) - Canaveral SLC-41 ~18:00

NET May - ALS mission 1, Carbonite 4 (CBNT 4) - Firefly Alpha (second flight) - Vandenberg SLC-2W

Firefly will not be able to build a second rocket by May, it is even unclear if they have the first one ready then. NET late 2021.

Quote
June - Transporter-2:

Transporter missions always have a 2-month launch window. Transporter-1 was 1 December - 31 January, and Transporter-2 is 1 June - 31 July according to filings like this.

Quote
December - Transporter-3:

This again will be NET 1 December and NLT 31 January. And so on.

TBD - NASA VCLS-2 Three / ELaNa mission - Terran-1 - Canaveral SLC-16 / Vandenberg

"Three" is my error. Astra does VCLS-2 One and Firefly VCLS-2 Two, so I thought Relativity would be VCLS-2 Three. But actually, there these are not numbers but mission profiles, and there are only two of them available. It was not disclosed yet if Terran-1 will fly a One or a Two mission:
Quote
In a request for proposals issued in July, the agency sought proposals for two specific types of missions. One, called Mission One, would be a dedicated launch of 30 kilograms of cubesats into a 500-kilometer mid-inclination orbit. The other, Mission Two, would launch 75 kilograms of cubesats into one 550-kilometer sun-synchronous orbit and 20 kilograms into a similar orbit, but in a plane separate from the first by at least 10 degrees.
...
Relativity received a $3.0 million contract, but did not disclose in a statement what class of mission its contract is for.

SMC Press Release
The Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC), in partnership with the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), awarded four National Security Space missions to Space Exploration Technologies, Inc. (SpaceX) and United Launch Alliance (ULA) under the Phase 2 Launch Service Procurement contracts on Mar 09, 2021. SMC’s Launch Enterprise awarded USSF-36 and NROL-69 to SpaceX (both using the Falcon 9 launch vehicle) and USSF-112 and USSF-87 to ULA (both using the Vulcan Centaur launch vehicle).

“Today, we are making it possible for our National Security Space team to accomplish our mission of providing on-orbit space capability to the warfighter,” said Col. Robert Bongiovi, director of SMC’s Launch Enterprise. “The National Security Space Launch Phase 2 Launch Service Procurement contracts provide our customers affordability, flexibility, and extremely high reliability. This is the second order of the five-year Phase 2 ordering period. We are very pleased with the flexibility offered by our Phase 2 providers to make the best launch choices and adjustments as we proceed.”

USSF-36 has a scheduled launch date in the second quarter of FY23, NROL-69 in the fourth quarter of FY23, USSF-112 in the third quarter of FY23, and USSF-87 in the fourth quarter of FY23.

SMC issued ULA task orders for USSF-112 and USSF-87 for $225 million, which include basic launch services and mission integration. SMC issued SpaceX task orders for USSF-36 and NROL-69 for $160 million, which include basic launch services and mission integration for USSF-36 and only basic launch services for NROL-69. The NRO will fund its mission integration separately.

The Space and Missile Systems Center, located at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, California, is the U.S. Space Force’s center of acquisition excellence for acquiring and developing military space systems. The Center’s portfolio includes the Space Launch and Range Systems, Global Positioning System, Military Satellite Communications, Defense Meteorological Satellites, Satellite Control Networks, Space Based Infrared Systems and Space Situational Awareness capabilities.
