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.

FOSSA chose Momentus for two contracts. The first contract is for the delivery of their next generation of satellites, planned for launch on the SpaceX Transporter-8 mission targeted for June of 2023. Not only will this showcase the new design features of FOSSA satellites, it will also serve as a demonstration for a second batch of satellites Momentus expects to launch for FOSSA onboard a follow-on SpaceX Transporter mission in June of 2024. Combined, these two missions will kick off the deployment of a new constellation of FOSSA satellites and marked progress as Momentus works towards our first stage constellation deployment.

Looks the second batch of fossa satellites goes on this flight.

Weird, Momentus is expected to launch on Transporter-9 next, not Transporter-8.

They can always just contract with one of the other launch integrators to carry a deployer, it happens quite often.

Impulse Space Announces LEO Express-2 and LEO Express-3 Missions

The 2024 missions will provide last-mile orbital delivery and hosted payload services

July 31, 2023 09:02 AM Eastern Daylight Time
REDONDO BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Impulse Space, Inc. – a leader in the development of in-space transportation services for the inner solar system – today announced its LEO Express-2 and LEO Express-3 missions. These two missions will perform in-space services, including payload hosting, last-mile orbital delivery, constellation deployment, low altitude maneuvers and controlled atmospheric re-entry. They will be utilizing the same Mira vehicle in the previously announced LEO Express-1 mission.

Mira has unparalleled maneuverability for orbital transfers in LEO (Low Earth Orbit), enabling customers to reach any altitude, rapidly phase constellations, shift equatorial crossing times and adjust orbital inclination. It has payload capacity for up to 300 kg and can accommodate a combination of cubesats, smallsats, and hosted payloads. Mira uses in-house developed Saiph thrusters to provide rapid maneuvering capability for reaching custom orbits in LEO.

“We are incredibly excited to announce the LEO Express-2 and 3 missions to follow LEO Express-1 set to launch no earlier than November 2023,” says Impulse Space Founder and CEO Tom Mueller. “Our team is dedicated to continually support the growing space economy through rapid, reliable and consistent services.”

Similar to LEO Express-1, the second and third LEO Express missions will launch with SpaceX on their Transporter rideshare missions. Impulse has purchased slots on the SpaceX Transporter-11 and Tranporter-12 missions, which are currently set to launch no earlier than June 2024 and October 2024.

SAT-LOA-20230824-00211 YAC-1-1 on T11, YAC-1-2 .. YAC-1-10 on T12.
Quote
Loft Orbital Solutions Inc. (“Loft Orbital”) requests authority to launch and operate a constellation of
10 satellites (“YAC-1”). YAC-1 is Loft Orbital’s first customer constellation, which will be the EarthDaily
Analytics Corp. (“EarthDaily”) earth observation system. Each satellite in the YAC-1 constellation
includes a VNIR imager, a SWIR imager, and a Thermal/IR imager. The satellites will be phased equally
around the orbital plane and provide nearly daily coverage of major Earth land masses.

The constellation is expected to be launched on two SpaceX Transporter missions.
The first satellite is scheduled for launch in June 2024 and the remaining satellites in October 2024.

The YAC-1 spacecraft are based on the AOS Arrow
bus originally developed by Airbus for the OneWeb broadband telecommunications company.
Basic physical dimensions are 1200 mm x 1052 mm x 1036 mm with a mass of approximately 216 kg.

ESA's Arctic Weather Satellite is launching on Transporter 11 on 1 June 2024.

https://www.esa.int/Applications/Observing_the_Earth/Meteorological_missions/Arctic_Weather_Satellite/Arctic_Weather_Satellite_in_shape

"Embracing the New Space approach, it has taken just 36 months to develop and build ESA’s Arctic Weather Satellite. Now complete, this remarkable microsatellite has been shipped from OHB in Sweden to Germany where it is starting a series of tests to make sure that it will survive liftoff next year and its subsequent life in orbit."
...
"Once these tests have been completed, the satellite will be shipped back to OHB Sweden some final checks before it is shipped to SpaceX’s launch site in Vandenberg, California in April. Liftoff is slated for 1 June 2024 on a Falcon 9 rocket."
