Vanotti on OneWeb launch plans: we have an agreement with SpaceX for a few Falcon 9 launches and NSIL for GSLV Mark III. Our plan is to be back on the pad in the 4th quarter and complete deployment by the 2nd quarter of 2023. Full global service by the end of 2023. #SWFSummit22

Starlink 3-1: 8th July https://nextspaceflight.com/launches/details/6797
CRS-25: 7 July https://nextspaceflight.com/launches/details/4753
Starlink 4-22: July 2022 https://nextspaceflight.com/launches/details/6952
Starlink 3-2: July? 2022 https://twitter.com/Alexphysics13/status/1527575550784577536 https://nextspaceflight.com/launches/?search=SpaceX (8th plus record 22 day turnaround doesn't leave much room in July hence my ?)
Starlink 4-25: July 2022 https://nextspaceflight.com/launches/details/6954
Starlink 4-26 and 4-2: could be Aug 2022 per https://nextspaceflight.com/launches/?search=SpaceX and FCC STAs, might be a little more specific than 'Starlink (Florida) 2022'

not sure if these are adequate to change manifest on page 1

Not sure where these NET dates came from, so I'd take them with a grain of salt.

Mmmm I may know where that's from. I have all those same dates on the facebook group I moderate through launch events. She probably thought those are hard dates when they're best guesses. Not her fault, facebook doesn't have a good way to say "hey this is a best guess for now".

New: Northrop Grumman has bought three Falcon 9 missions from SpaceX to launch its Cygnus cargo spacecraft, a spokeswoman says, as the company looks to replace Antares' Russian-made RD-181 engines with Firefly's Miranda engines.

Seems that SpaceX got a launch contract for Total and Spectral Solar Irradiance Sensor - 2 (TSIS-2) for $5.9M, it goes to 600km polar orbit in 2024, probably a rideshare.

Not sure when the official website was updated but SpaceX now lists 2024 Transporter missions (presumably 10, 11, 12):

Transporter-10: January 2024

Transporter-11: June 2024

Transporter-12: Q4 2024

It’s been mentioned elsewhere, here’s the NASA press release:

NASA Awards SpaceX More Crew Flights to Space Station

NASA has awarded five additional missions to Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX) of Hawthorne, California, for crew transportation services to the International Space Station as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) contract. The CCtCap modification brings the total missions for SpaceX to 14 and allows NASA to maintain an uninterrupted U.S. capability for human access to the space station until 2030, with two unique commercial crew industry partners.

This is a firm fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract modification for the Crew-10, Crew-11, Crew-12, Crew-13, and Crew-14 flights. The value of this modification for all five missions and related mission services is $1,436,438,446. The amount includes ground, launch, in-orbit, and return and recovery operations, cargo transportation for each mission, and a lifeboat capability while docked to the International Space Station. The period of performance runs through 2030 and brings the total CCtCap contract value with SpaceX to $4,927,306,350.

The award follows the agency issuing a notice of intent in June 2022 to purchase the additional missions. The current sole source modification does not preclude NASA from seeking future contract modifications for additional transportation services, as needed.

In 2014, NASA awarded the CCtCap contracts to Boeing and SpaceX through a public-private partnership as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program. Under CCtCap, NASA certifies that a provider’s space transportation system meets the agency’s requirements prior to flying missions with astronauts.

SpaceX was certified by NASA for crew transportation in November 2020. The company's fourth crew rotation mission for the agency, the Crew-4 mission, is currently in orbit aboard the space station. As part of the missions, SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket transport up to four astronauts, along with critical cargo, to the space station.

Should be mistake. Next flight from 39A https://nextspaceflight.com/launches/details/6965
Less than 2 days TO for LC - it would be epic, following 5+ days record breaking turnaround time for LC-40.

And here is correction:

The next SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from pad 39A will launch a Starlink batch on September 10 at 7:51pm EDT. Sunset is 7:33pm. Another Falcon 9 will launch a Starlink batch from pad 40 on September 11 around 8 or 9pm EDT. Upcoming launches include more Starlink batches. Then, a Falcon 9 from pad 39A will launch four astronauts on NASA's Crew-5 mission on October 3 at 12:45pm EDT.

Sidus Space Executes Multiple Launch Agreement with SpaceX

Quote
Sidus Space, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIDU), a Space-as-a-Service satellite company focused on mission critical hardware manufacturing; multi-disciplinary engineering services; satellite design, production, launch planning, mission operations; and in-orbit support, today announced that it has signed a launch agreement with SpaceX for five launches, beginning in early 2023.

I'm guessing these are launching on Transporter missions?

Iridium announced this morning that it will launch five of its six remaining spare satellites on a Falcon 9 rideshare mission in mid-2023 from Vandenberg. Iridium said in a recent earnings call it had plans to launch those satellites, but didn’t disclose the provider at the time.

Iridium Announces Ninth SpaceX Launch

MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Iridium Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: IRDM) today announced that it has reached an agreement with SpaceX to launch up to five of the company's remaining ground spare satellites from the Iridium® NEXT program, on its Falcon 9 rocket.  Known as Iridium-9, the launch is planned to take place at Vandenberg Space Force Base in mid-2023.  Earlier this year, Iridium celebrated the 25th anniversary of the first launch in Iridium's history, which also took place from Vandenberg on May 5, 1997. That first ever launch also carried five Iridium satellites to orbit on a Delta II rocket.
Iridium-9 will be Iridium's second rideshare with SpaceX.  Previously, SpaceX conducted eight Iridium launches between January 2017 and January 2019.  These launches delivered 75 satellites to LEO as part of the Iridium NEXT campaign, replacing the company's original satellite constellation. Since completion of the launch campaign in 2019, Iridium has 66 operational satellites, nine on-orbit spares and six additional spares on the ground.  Up to five of those six ground spares are planned for launch as part of Iridium-9.  All satellites in the upgraded Iridium constellation were built by Thales Alenia Space and carry the Aireon® hosted payload, which provides truly global, real-time surveillance of aircraft around the world.

"We have always said that when the right opportunity presented itself, we would launch many, if not all, of our remaining ground spares, and just such an opportunity came about," said Iridium CEO Matt Desch.  "Our constellation is incredibly healthy; however, the spare satellites have no utility to us on the ground.  We built extra satellites as an insurance policy, and with SpaceX's stellar track record, we look forward to another successful launch, which will position us even better to replicate the longevity of our first constellation."

Since the completion of the upgraded Iridium network in early 2019, Iridium's customer base grew by more than 730,000 subscribers in just three years and has more than 1.8 million today.  With that subscriber growth came several new Iridium products and services, including the Iridium Certus® specialty broadband platform, Iridium's Global Maritime Distress and Safety System, Iridium Global Line of Sight® service for uncrewed and autonomous systems, and over 150 new Iridium narrowband and specialty broadband products brought to market by our partner ecosystem.

Iridium remains the only commercial satellite constellation with truly global coverage, offering weather-resilient L-band service from pole-to-pole.  The constellation is divided into six polar orbiting planes that each include 11 operational crosslinked satellites.  The satellites from Iridium-9 will be launched into a parking orbit, and after initial testing will be drifted to their assigned spare orbits.
