Planet had a recent STA request to communicate with Pelican sats starting November 1.  I guess there could be some on this flight?  up to 160kg, VLEO (325km) operational orbit

Planet’s Pelican Tech Demonstration Satellite Ready for Launch
October 10, 2023
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Planet Labs PBC (NYSE: PL), a leading provider of daily data and insights about Earth, today announced that its Pelican tech demonstration satellite, Pelican-1, along with 36 SuperDoves, have arrived at Vandenberg Space Force Base in preparation for launch next month. Pelican-1, designed and manufactured by Planet, is the first tech demonstration of Planet’s next-generation, high-resolution fleet, which is expected to replenish and improve upon Planet’s existing high-resolution systems in orbit today. The 36 SuperDoves, Planet’s Flock 4q, will contribute to Planet’s daily monitoring PlanetScope mission.

Pelican-1 is a technology demonstration, built to test Pelican’s integrated design and Planet’s common bus platform. This common bus platform, designed and built by Planet, will also host the Company’s future hyperspectral Tanager mission. Planet launches tech demonstrations across all of its new satellite fleets in order to prove out next-generation systems, test its latest technology, and learn from its performance, improving the scalability of its systems along the way. Pelican-1 is not expected to produce commercial data, but rather obtain critical information and learnings needed to iterate the Pelican design and rapidly scale to a fleet using Planet’s agile aerospace approach. When fully operational, the Pelican constellation is planned to improve upon every dimension of Planet’s existing high-resolution SkySat constellation - faster acquisition and delivery of data, better spatial resolution to see finer details, higher revisit to catch fleeting events, and more ways to combine insights with other analytics and sensors.

The 36 SuperDoves launching will contribute to Planet’s flagship daily, global monitoring mission. This data is used by hundreds of customers in defense, civil government, and commercial markets to take informed action, and better contextualize events they’re seeing on the ground today. Planet’s daily scan and deep archive of data for every point on Earth is unique within the industry and provides customers with a continuous and complete view of their areas of interest. Further, the archive acts as a rich training ground for predictive machine learning and advanced artificial intelligence models, accelerating users’ ability to draw insights from the terabytes of data collected by Planet each day.

“The launch of our first Pelican tech demonstration marks an exciting milestone for us,” said Will Marshall, co-founder and CEO of Planet. “This new spacecraft bus is an exquisite system that will underpin both our Pelican and Tanager fleets and we can’t wait to learn and iterate in our agile aerospace model. The 36 SuperDoves also launching are not to be overlooked. They will join the flock we have in-orbit today, which remains the largest earth imaging fleet, providing our unique daily scan that is helping to unlock new markets.”

Planet is committed to delivering best-in-class data and services to its customers and expects this launch of Pelican-1 and 36 SuperDoves will help further the company’s mission of making change visible, accessible, and actionable. As the launch window nears, Planet, alongside its launch partner, will be sharing more details. Stay tuned.

Momentus Customers Integrated and Shipped to SpaceX Launch Site

October 10, 2023 07:07 AM Eastern Daylight Time
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Momentus Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTS) (“Momentus” or the “Company”), a U.S. commercial space company that offers satellite buses, transportation, and other in-space infrastructure services, has integrated its customers launching on the SpaceX Transporter-9 mission and shipped the payloads to Vandenberg Space Force Base for integration with Falcon 9 ahead of launch, which is targeted for no earlier than November 2023.

Momentus will use a deployer to place five satellites into Low-Earth Orbit for four different customers:

The AMAN-1 Earth Observation satellite will be deployed for SatRev of Poland. 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.

The Hello Test 1 & 2 satellites will be deployed for Hello Space of Turkey as part of their “Hello for IoT” mission. The two pocketqubes are part of Hello Space’s broader mission to enable worldwide IoT ecosystems and end-to-data data services for various industries. Hello Test 1 & 2 will be Hello Space’s second and third satellites launched to orbit.
...
The Transporter-9 mission will mark Momentus’ final mission of 2023. The Company will next launch its Vigoride-7 Orbital Service Vehicle on SpaceX’s Transporter-10 mission targeted for no earlier than February 2024. On that flight, 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.
