AST SpaceMobile Announces Launch Services Agreement to Deploy 693-Square-Foot Phased Array Spacecraft for Direct-to-Cell Phone Connectivity Testing
 
July 29, 2021 08:02 AM Eastern Daylight Time

MIDLAND, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AST SpaceMobile, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTS), the company building the first and only space-based cellular broadband network accessible directly by standard mobile phones, today announced an agreement with Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (“SpaceX”) for the launch of its next prototype spacecraft, BlueWalker 3.

“We're pleased to launch with US-based SpaceX, which allows us to deploy BlueWalker 3 from our own backyard,“ said Scott Wisniewski, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of AST SpaceMobile. #5G

BlueWalker 3 is expected to launch aboard a SpaceX mission from Cape Canaveral, Florida, in March 2022. The spacecraft has an aperture of 693 square feet and is designed to communicate directly with cell phones via 3GPP standard frequencies.

“We're pleased to launch with US-based SpaceX, which allows us to deploy BlueWalker 3 from our own backyard,“ said Scott Wisniewski, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of AST SpaceMobile. “The spacecraft will be the second prototype to leverage our patented technology.”

AST SpaceMobile's mission is to eliminate the connectivity gaps faced by today's five billion mobile subscribers moving in and out of coverage zones, and bring cellular broadband to approximately half of the world's population who remain unconnected.

Partners in this effort are leading global wireless infrastructure companies, including Rakuten, Vodafone and American Tower. As of June 30, 2021, AST SpaceMobile has entered into agreements and understandings with mobile network operators which collectively cover approximately 1.4 billion mobile subscribers.

Steve Collar, CEO of SES who also joined the virtual press event, said the company decided to launch mPOWER satellites in batches of three initially, even though it is possible to fit four on a Falcon 9.

“We’re still hoping we’ll get [the first three] off at the very end of this year,” Collar said.

“It might be touch and go. It could be a Christmas or a New Year gift.”

He added: “[T]hen the second three will launch sometime in the first quarter. And actually we have a little bit more oomph on the second launch, and that’ll allow the … two sets of satellites to get to orbit roughly at the same time — so, the middle of the year, and that’ll allow us to do a full orbital check out on the first six, which is what we will be basing kind of the launch service on.

“And then the … remaining satellites will get launched through 2022 and 2023.”

Some explanation of SpaceX launch hiatus:

I watched Gwynne speak at the Space Warfighting Industry Forum yesterday. 

[…]

Need to get over the chip hump and think they will in October.

EnMAP to launch in 2022 on Falcon 9:

https://www.dlr.de/eoc/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-5514/20470_read-47899/

Quote
EnMAP (Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program) will be the first German optical earth remote sensing mission in orbit. It will acquire high quality hyperspectral image data with 230 spectral channels in the solar-reflectance range on a frequent basis with high geometric resolution. The major objectives of the mission are to measure, derive, and analyze numerous diagnostic parameters which describe vital processes on the earth’s surface relating to agriculture, forestry, soil and geological environments, as well as coastal zones and inland waters. During operations the mission will provide information about the status of different ecosystems and their response to natural or man-made changes in the environment. The mission management is led by the Space Agency of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The scientific aspects of the mission are covered by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ). The OHB-System AG is responsible for the development, production, and launch of the satellite. The establishment and operation of the ground segment is performed by the DLR entities Earth Observation Center (EOC) and Space Operations and Astronaut Training (RB) . The ground segment is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi).

EnMAP in a nutshell:

Size of satellite: 3.1 m × 2.0 m × 1.7 m

CSG-2 is listed by most manifests as launching on Vega-C.  A recent filing for ground station support shows it as launching on a Falcon 9 from Florida NET November.  A document on the Italian Space Agency's site that has a 2021 date shows it as launching before the end of 2021.

GOES-U will provide advanced imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth’s weather, oceans, and environment, as well as real-time mapping of total lightning activity and improved monitoring of solar activity and space weather.

The total cost for NASA to launch GOES-U is approximately $152.5 million, which includes the launch service and other mission-related costs.

The GOES-U mission is targeted to launch in April 2024 on a Falcon Heavy rocket from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. GOES-U is the fourth and final spacecraft in the GOES-R Series of geostationary weather satellites operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The GOES-R Series is a joint effort between NASA and NOAA and includes GOES-R, GOES-S, GOES-T, and GOES-U.

NASA’s Launch Services Program at Kennedy Space Center in Florida is responsible for launch vehicle program management of the SpaceX launch service. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, manages the GOES-R Flight Projects office, which oversees the acquisition of the GOES-R series instruments and spacecraft. A collaborative NOAA and NASA team manages the GOES-R Program.

Turkey's transport and infrastructure ministry has selected SpaceX/Falcon 9 for #Turksat6A, the country's first domestically built comms satellite. Completion in late 2022 followed by launch from KSC/Cape in 2023.

Of course this news breaks while I'm on vacation in...Turkey.

CSG-2 is listed by most manifests as launching on Vega-C.  A recent filing for ground station support shows it as launching on a Falcon 9 from Florida NET November.  A document on the Italian Space Agency's site that has a 2021 date shows it as launching before the end of 2021.

...The second COSMO SkyMed Second Generation satellite (CSG-2) was planned to be launched with VEGA-C within 2021, but the launcher development has been impacted by the VV15 and VV17 failures and, above all, by the COVID pandemic. The delays, postponing the VEGA-C Maiden Flight to Q1 2022, with a consequent tight schedule of launches in 2022, made the  launch period of CSG-2 no longer compatible with the needs of the COSMO Mission. Since Arianespace backlog was already full on Soyuz and Ariane systems in 2021, it was not possible to have a European back-up solution compliant with the CSG-2 schedule, thus an alternative solution with the US provider SPACE X has been adopted allowing to keep the CSG-2 launch within the current year. ...

Varda Space announced Oct. 11 it signed a launch services agreement with SpaceX for that smallsat, which will be part of a Falcon 9 rideshare mission scheduled for the first quarter of 2023. The companies did not disclose the terms of the contract.

The spacecraft will spend up to three months in orbit to test space manufacturing technologies. At the end of that mission, a reentry capsule will return to Earth the material produced in orbit.

The UAE’s Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre announced at a press conference during #IAC2021 that it’s selected SpaceX to launch its MBZ SAT imaging satellite on a Falcon 9 in 2023.

Its a 700 kg satellite launching to LEO, so will presumably launch on a Transporter rideshare mission.

MBRSC team completed the structure model and initial tests of MBZ-SAT along with the completion of the engineering and Flatsat qualification module. The team will now begin preparations to manufacture the flight model.

Might launch on Transporter-9?

South Korean ground station operator orders its first EO satellite [dated Nov. 12]

Quote
SEOUL, South Korea — Contec, a ground station services provider here, has signed a contract with smallsat mission integrator NanoAvionics for an Earth observation satellite that will launch in the second half of 2023 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

Under the deal announced Oct. 27, the U.S.-based NanoAvionics will provide a modular 16U satellite bus that will consist of Contec’s laser communication terminal (LCT) and an integrated imager with 1.5-meter resolution, supplied by South Africa’s Simera Sense.

Update: NanoAvionics press release states first half of 2023, which could be Transporter-7 or -8. An error on SpaceNews' part?
