Rocket Lab will build the spacecraft for EscaPADE but it will not provide the launch. NASA is looking for a rideshare opportunity for the mission as soon as January 2024, allowing the spacecraft to arrive at Mars 11 months later. The other two SIMPLEx missions are also using rideshare launch services.

Space Development Agency to acquire 144 satellites from multiple vendors

Quote from: SpaceNews
The Defense Department’s space agency on Aug. 30 released a request for proposals from satellite manufacturers that would compete for contracts to build as many as 144 satellites.

The satellites will make up the Space Development Agency’s Transport Layer Tranche 1 — a mesh network of communications satellites in low Earth orbit projected to start launching in late 2024.

According to the request for proposals (RFP), the agency intends to buy 126 baseline satellites and 18 additional ones for hosting other payloads. They will be divided into six orbital planes, to be awarded to multiple vendors.

Companies are asked to bid for two of the orbital planes, with the associated ground equipment. All satellites have to be interoperable and able to share data via optical inter-satellite links, regardless of who manufactures them.

Proposals are due in October and SDA expects to award contracts in January.

Cross-post:
The next three Minotaur launches, including this one, will be from Vandenberg.

https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021/09/ng-16-update/

Quote
“We’re basically on contract for three Minotaur launches. One is a Minotaur IV, which looks like it’s going to be launched from Vandenberg Space Force Base in 2023, and that’s for the Space Force,” said Eberly.

In total, there will be one Minotaur launch in 2022 and two launches in 2023. All three of these missions will launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California and will be flown for the U.S. Space Force.

The 2022 launch is probably the Minotaur II suborbital flight mentioned last year that was scheduled for later this year.

Quote
There’s also a mission assigned to a Minotaur 2 rocket — a suborbital Minotaur configuration — scheduled to fly from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in late 2021, according to the Space and Missile Systems Center.

Not sure what the second 2023 launch is, but it's probably not another Minotaur IV given the phrasing in Eberly's statement.

The schedule slips, while not significant amid the history of SLS program delays, have put a major crunch on NASA’s ambition to launch the Artemis 1 mission this year. The agency is evaluating Artemis 1 launch opportunities in the second half of December, multiple sources said, but that would require NASA to cut in half the time it originally allotted between the SLS fueling test and the actual launch date.

With opportunities eroding to launch the Artemis 1 mission before the end of the year, the SLS test flight is more likely to take off some time in the first half of 2022.

Cross-post; clue to Inspiration4 launch time?
Active NOTAM in TAHITI information region for Stage2 reentry of Inspiration4 mission since 15 Sep 01:13 UTC until 21 Sep 01:24 UTC.
[Map image attached to original post.]
Might this be the Fregat re-entry zone for the Sept 14 OneWeb launch from Vostochny?

Edit: Scratch that.  By visual inspection, that zone doesn't match OneWeb 86.4 deg orbital inclination.


Launch would be ~1 hour previous; ~00:15 ~00:00 UTC?
Equals the hour of Sept 14, 8 pm EDT.

Edit: the answer:

Inspiration4 ‘Go’ for First All-Civilian Orbital Mission to Space

HAWTHORNE, CA, September 3, 2021 – Teams from SpaceX and Inspiration4 met yesterday at SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California to evaluate the readiness of the Falcon 9 rocket, Dragon spacecraft, ground systems, recovery assets, crew training, and other key elements of SpaceX’s human spaceflight system for Inspiration4 – the historic first all-civilian human spaceflight mission to orbit. Upon conclusion of the Flight Readiness Review, teams are proceeding toward a targeted launch on Wednesday, September 15 UTC (September 14 EDT) from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A backup launch opportunity is available on Thursday, September 16 UTC (September 15 EDT). Both 24-hour launch windows start at 12:00 a.m. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Approximately three days before liftoff, SpaceX will narrow down the launch window to five hours based upon weather conditions at the launch site, along the ascent corridor, and at landing locations off the coasts of Florida for a safe return of the crew and splashdown a few days later.

All launch dates and times are subject to change and are listed in 24-hour format.

Data    Time/Window
Launch  PST/PDT  Vehicle     Pad/Silo    Comments
SEP 23    11:11    Atlas V     SLC-3      Vehicle will launch the LANDSAT 9 satellite into orbit
SEP 30     TBA      Falcon 9   SLC-4E    Vehicle will launch Starlink 2-1 internet satellites into orbit
NOV 23   22:58    Falcon 9   SLC-4E     Vehicle will launch the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft
NET MAR  TBA      Falcon 9   SLC-4E     Vehicle will launch the WorldView Legion 1 and Legion 2 satellites into orbit

I don't think that's a real date for Starlink and I kinda doubt those Legion sats will be launching from Vandy
