In the tweet below Momentus should be talking about the HelloPod deployer mentioned in the application. Interestingly, here the capacity is expressed in terms of number of hosted spacecrafts, so I assume it's about four 2P pocketqubes.

That press release does not match the FCC filing.  In this case I'd guess the press release is correct?

SAT-LOA-20230504-00103 MuSat-2 on T9, MuSat-3 on T11

Quote
The MuSats are planned to be launched as secondary payloads on SpaceX Falcon9 Transporter ride-share missions. MuSat-2 is planned to be launched in October of 2023 on Transporter 9 and MuSat-3 is planned for mid-2024 on Transporter 11.
...
The MuSat satellites are demonstration spacecraft with two primary goals. The first goal is to demonstrate and validate the on-orbit performance of Muon Space’s in-house avionics suite. The second goal is to provide validation and early commercial data from GNSS occultation and reflectometry payloads as well additional payloads that will be hosted on the spacecraft.
...
LTDN 10:30 (T9) 13:00-15:00 (T11)
...
The MuSat satellites have external dimensions of 0.752m x 1.206m x 0.864m, both stowed and
deployed, as the system contains no deployables. The spacecraft mass at launch is estimated
to be 67.4kg, and as there are no consumables or separable hardware, this will effectively
remain constant over the lifetime of the mission.

https://spacenews.com/darpa-selects-umbra-to-demonstrate-radar-imaging-techniques/
Quote
Umbra under the DARPA contract will demonstrate a technique known as bistatic collection. Monostatic SAR imaging is done with a single radar that has the transmitter and receiver collocated. Bistatic imaging uses two radars, one that transmits and receives, and the other that only receives.

“We plan to build out the remainder of our constellation with pairs of satellites flying in tight formation to support bistatic collection and other combined operations that provide unique phenomenology,” he said.

SpaceIn Signs Rideshare Agreement with Alba Orbital to Launch IoT Picosatellite Mission in Q4 2023

MALAYSIAN NEW-SPACE STARTUP TEAM UP WITH ALBA ORBITAL TO LAUNCH MALAYSIA’S 1ST POCKETQUBE VIA SPACEX IN 2023 AS AN IN-ORBIT TECH DEMO FOR IOT CONSTELLATION.

Glasgow, UK – May 30, 2023 – Alba Orbital, the leading provider of PocketQube satellite launch services, today announced that SpaceIn Sdn Bhd, a spin-off company of Universiti Sains Malaysia specializing in satellite IoT services has signed a launch services agreement to launch to an in-orbit tech demonstration mission for an IoT picosatellite constellation. Space ANT-D is the first Malaysian PocketQube and will be flying on board SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Rocket in Q4 2023.

SpaceANT is a 1P PocketQube satellite that’s no bigger than a rubik’s cube, measuring at just 5x5x5 cm and weighing under 250g. The launch in Q4 2023 is set to be a technology demonstration of this concept, with SpaceIn planning to launch an IoT constellation in the near future. The satellite’s namesake ‘SpaceANT’ stands for “Space Advance Network Technology”, and is a reference to both the satellite’s size and capability.

SpaceANT-D’s primary mission is to store and forward sensor data using LoRa technology for IoT monitoring systems in Southeast Asia. The launch in Q4 2023 is set to be a technology demonstration of this concept, with SpaceIn planning to launch an IoT constellation in the near future.

IoT satellite constellations are transforming a wide range of industries, from agriculture to transportation. One of SpaceIn’s aims with their growing picosatellite constellation is to revolutionise reforestation efforts using space based IoT solutions as announced at the Langkawi international space forum earlier this week.

“SpaceIn aspires to spearhead the space exploration activity in Malaysia”, said SpaceIn Founder and Chief Executive, Dr. Norilmi Amilia Ismail. “We believe in the liberty of space discovery through low cost and commercially accessible technologies like PocketQubes, that are lowering the barriers to entry for those who wish to access space.”

“We are thrilled to work with SpaceIn on this upcoming mission, and excited to play a part in Malaysia’s growing space ecosystem” said Tom Walkinshaw, CEO of Alba Orbital. “Dr. Ismail and her team share our vision to leverage low cost space technologies, to deliver tangible insights to improve life on earth.”

Sidus Space to Launch LizzieSat™ Satellite with Edge AI, Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging on SpaceX Transporter Mission
June 07, 2023 06:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sidus Space (NASDAQ: SIDU) (the “Company” or “Sidus”), a multi-faceted Space and Defense-as-a-Service satellite company, announced today that it will launch industry leading hyperspectral and multispectral imaging and Edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) in its LizzieSat™ satellite on SpaceX Transporter missions beginning in 2024.

LizzieSat’s hyperspectral and multispectral imaging capability will be provided by the Owl 1280 and Hawk 1920 HD cameras made by Raptor Photonics. Sidus is building its space-based infrastructure of multi-mission satellites with hyperspectral, multispectral and other sensors to provide monitoring services and solutions to multiple sectors and industries.

Sidus’ sub-5m ground sampling distance (GSD) multispectral SWIR, coupled with sub-10m hyperspectral imagery capabilities provides the Company with a competitive advantage in serving the $55.6 billion SmallSat market. Additionally, the Company’s robust ground coverage and Edge AI accelerates the receipt of actionable data sent to the ground by parsing key identifying information before transmission. Sidus’ satellites are expected to circle the earth every 95 minutes with communication gaps less than 10 minutes on each orbit. This gap can be closed completely as additional ground stations are secured. This provides customers with satellite access near-real-time data transmission. “LizzieSat’s hyperspectral and multispectral imaging capability will provide potential data solutions for a variety of market verticals within the estimated $1 trillion space economy anticipated by 2040,” commented Carol Craig, Founder & CEO of Sidus Space. “Key industries that will benefit and provide markets for this imaging include agriculture, climate change, renewables, mining, and oil and gas. We look forward to further development of our LizzieSat constellation as we seek to develop and provide access to space-based data on-demand for any problem set or business need.”

The Company plans to monetize its imagery both through previously negotiated contracts and through its agreement with Skywatch and others to sell imagery on their storefront. This hyperspectral and multispectral capability is also key to the Sidus’ strategy to generate recurring revenue streams from new customers as Sidus builds its LizzieSat constellation.

Sidus plans to launch its first LizzieSat on the SpaceX Transporter mission scheduled for later this year and has contracted with SpaceX to launch on four additional flights, with two currently scheduled for 2024 and two more scheduled for 2025, allowing the Company to establish a regular launch cadence for its customers. The Company plans to begin offering hyperspectral and multispectral imaging from its LizzieSats scheduled for launch on SpaceX’s transporter mission in the first quarter of next year.

Outpost requests authority to launch and operate one NGSO 3U cubesatellite Outpost Mission 2.
Mission 2 mirrors the recently authorized Outpost mission, except for the name (Mission 2 instead
of Mission 0) and addition of two gas generators.

A thermal protection system is required to protect spacecraft on reentry to celestial bodies with
atmospheres. NASA's hypersonic inflatable aerodynamic decelerator (“HIAD”) is one such
system being developing for missions to planets and moons with atmospheres as well as returning
payloads to Earth. To support such government and commercial deployments, Outpost is
developing GasPak, a low mass, low temperature, and clean gas generator that would inflate
HIADs and similar reentry-aiding hardware. Mission 2 will carry and, once on orbit, attempt to
start two nitrogen-producing gas generators.

Mission 2 will not attempt any reusable reentry. It will only trial the flight software,
avionics, power system, radiofrequency links, and gas generators that could support future reusable
satellites.

Anticipated launch vehicle and site: Exolaunch deployer on Transporter 9 launch onboard SpaceX Falcon
9 from Cape Canaveral, Florida

Proposed launch date: no earlier than October 1, 2023

Launch and deployment profile: delivered to circular sun-synchronous, low-Earth Orbit (LEO) with a
nominal altitude of 525 km ±20 km altitude and MLTDN 10:30 + 60 min

Total mass at launch: approximately 4.353 kg

The filing (June 12th).

Odyssey SpaceWorks requests authority to launch and operate one non-geostationary
orbit satellite, OSW Cazorla. The requested licensing issue date is August 20, 2023
given current launch service provider requirements for the Transporter-9 mission.

The goal is to monitor and measure the growth and
effectiveness of fruit fly protein cells in LEO gravity compared to an Earth-based
identical experiment. It will help determine cell culture production feasibility in space
and could serve as a proof point for off-world pharmaceutical production.

The OSW Cazorla satellite is based on the EnduroSat 3U cubesat.

Application filed on 6/26.

CE-SAT-1E officially bails, now announced to ride on H-3 TF2.

CE-SAT-1D was last rumored to be launching on Transporter 9 as part of Spaceflight Inc's hurried remanifesting of customers following their banning by SpaceX, but it's no longer clear if that's the case with it's sister sat no longer riding with it.

Looks like 2 rideshares announced for H-3 test flight 2 just now

TIRSAT, a 3U sat, and CE-SAT-1E (previously rumored to have been scheduled to ride SpaceX Transporter 9 along with it's sister sat CE-SAT-1D)
