We are happy to announce that, working with StardustMe, we have been able to help them secure a launch permit! The permit, granted by the NZ Space Agency, is valid for their next three missions. We look forward to keep working with them towards their next mission in October!

Momentus says Transporter 9 is now November.

Quote
The Company’s next flight is targeted for no earlier than November 2023 aboard the SpaceX Transporter-9 mission. During this mission, Momentus will use a deployer to place three satellites into Low-Earth Orbit for three different customers:

The AMAN-1 Earth Observation satellite will be deployed for SatRev. The satellite can also be used for other services such as land survey, precision agriculture, weather, environmental and smart cities.
The JINJUSat-1 satellite will be deployed for CONTEC Co. of the Republic of Korea. JINJUSat-1 is spearheaded by three entities: Jinju City, Korea Testing Laboratory, and Gyeongsang National University. Once in orbit, cameras mounted on the satellite will carry out a mission to take pictures of the Earth.
The Picacho satellite will be deployed for Lunasonde - a U.S. sub-surface imaging company with the goal of making underground resources – like water and minerals – easier to find. The Picacho CubeSat is a technology demonstration of Lunasonde’s sensors. It will measure the power spectral density of low-frequency radio signals in the ionosphere, which will help inform designs for the company’s future satellites.

Additionally, Momentus now plans to launch its Vigoride-7 OSV, originally scheduled for launch in October 2023, on SpaceX’s Transporter-10 mission targeted for no earlier than February 2024. On the Vigoride-7 mission, Momentus will aim to deploy several customer satellites in Low-Earth Orbit and provide services to a hosted payload. The Company will also release a target satellite and maneuver the OSV into proximity with the target satellite for a Remote Proximity Operations demonstration. The revised mission plans will enable Momentus to launch Vigoride-7 with a fuller load of payloads for deployment in LEO with better mission economics, while still meeting the needs of customers requiring orbital delivery in 2023.

I assume that Picacho and Gossamer-Vendelinus are the same spacecraft. Also, does this mean that all the other payloads manifested by Momentus (CUAVA-2, HelloPod, OreSat0.5, STORK-7, TROOP-F2, Waratah Seed WS-1, WREN and a FOSSA Systems pocketqube deployer) are moved to Transporter-10?

Bah, I can't read all of the logos (but can read quite a few). 15 cubesat deployers holding 28 satellites, plus some microsats.  Several different cubesat deployer sizes/configurations.

AAC Clyde Space to Launch Ymir-1 Satellite in November
2023-09-07 AAC Clyde Space AB (publ)

AAC Clyde Space and its partners Saab and Orbcomm are planning to launch Ymir-1, a Swedish built VDES spacecraft, in November 2023. The research project, that is partially funded by the Swedish Transport Administration, intendeds to launch a test satellite which will make way for a future constellation to provide a next generation VDES service.

AAC Clyde Space and Saab will host Trafikverket, The Swedish Transport Administration, Friday the 8th of September at AAC Clyde Space premises in Uppsala, Sweden where AAC Clyde Space is building the satellite. The first cutting-edge satellite is part of a collaborative project AOS, a brand born from a partnership between AAC Clyde Space, ORBCOMM and Saab.

Ymir-1 will carry a Saab VDES (VHF Data Exchange System) payload for two-way communication between satellite and ground and ORBCOMM will integrate the data in its distribution centre for maritime communications.

The goal of the consortium is to create a global maritime communication network enabling ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communication everywhere on the globe. Together they are developing the next generation of space based VDES. The addition of a space-based capability will increase VDES range from the shoreline to anywhere in the ocean, converting what is currently a predominantly coastal system into a global maritime system.

Our previous three satellites were important stepping stones, laying the foundation for our IoT connectivity and earth observation roadmap and we gained critical insights that will shape our future missions.🚀 Now we are gearing up for our most audacious mission yet. The simultaneous launch of our twin satellites, Connecta T3.1 & Connecta T3.2, with a specific mission objective: Inter-Satellite Link. 🛰🛰 Our "Double Trouble" satellites will serve as an experimental platform to validate the functionality, performance, reliability, and efficiency of ISL in real-world scenarios. Stay tuned for updates!

👋 We're waving goodbye to three more of our esteemed customer #satellites as they head out to the launch site for the upcoming SpaceX Transporter-9 mission.

As always, the pack is diverse in its applications:
📷 Keeping an eye on and delivering new insights about our planet
🌌 Searching for undiscovered black holes within our galaxy
🛰️ Demonstrating technologies to open a new chapter for our customers

Launch is coming! Stay in touch for more updates. And if you are looking to get your mission to space as well, explore our #smallsat buses and full mission services linked below.

Sidus' LizzieSats apparently moving from T9 to T10, and securing Bandwagon-1 slots as well.
Quote
Sidus Space initially planned to launch its first LizzieSat on Transporter-9 in Q4 2023. However,  the company adjusted its launch manifest to take advantage of the opportunity to cover more populated areas and increase data revenue. The updated schedule targets a first launch in Q1 2024, followed by two LizzieSats on a Bandwagon mission in Q2 2024
