It can be really hard to interpret satellite imagery! Local knowledge & an understanding of an area’s history are crucial pieces of the puzzle.

We’re *this close* to our next launch! Spaceflight is sending 16 payloads, with 15 onboard our next-generation OTV Sherpa-FX1, on the SpaceX Transporter-1 mission scheduled to liftoff from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

Spaceflight’s Senior Mission Manager Ryan Olcott summed up the importance of the upcoming launch: “This mission is new milestone for Spaceflight. Not only is it the debut flight of our next-gen Sherpa, we managed the end-to-end launch experience for 10 cubesats, four microsats and two hosted payloads — all during a global pandemic. A big heartfelt thank you to everyone involved for their hard work on this mission; it’s been a very smooth launch campaign and we can’t wait to get our customers’ spacecraft successfully on orbit.”

Below are insights and descriptions of a few of the payloads on the mission.

This is interesting.  Looks like a couple microsats got dropped from the Spaceflight payloads.  They list Hawkeye and iQPS, so that would mean Loft Orbital and Umbra dropped off?

Not necessarily. It could just mean those payloads have more restrictive non disclosure agreements with Spaceflight.

Loft Orbital's YAM-3 has been moved to a later launch. Umbra is (AFAIK) still on the Transporter-1 launch

Ms. Tree and Chief having finished work at the Starlink LZ and are now cruising south towards the Transporter-1 LZ, near Cuba.

They should arrive around launch time. There are some other ships in the area that may have been hired to babysit the fairing until the catchers arrive.

L-1 launch weather forecast for January 22 is still 80% GO. In case of a 24-hour delay, it's 60% GO. All additional risk criteria are low for both days.
GO for launch, GO for age of reflight

For the space catalog fans:  tomorrow's Transporter 1 launch is going to look different on the catalog.  We will be trying something new.  More information on what and why will come out tomorrow after the launch.  @18spcs @SpaceTrackOrg

The list is actually quite interesting.

1. There are 36 Flock-4s objects listed. I think we haven't known about them being launched with this mission, but it's not very surprising, Planet has already launched their satellites as a Starlink rideshire and has praised SpaceX pricing.
2. There are 16 Kepler objects instead of 8. Does it mean they are going to launch additional 8 sats? Strange.
3. There are 9 Nanoracks objects. I think they haven't released their manifest and for now we only know they will launch 8 Lemur-2 sats.
4. There are 10 Exoport objects, probably they will be used to release 30 satellites manifested by Exolaunch.
5. I think it hasn't been previously announced, but it looks like the Stanford/NASA experiment named V-R3x is going to fly to space with this mission: https://flightopportunities.nasa.gov/technologies/259/
6. IQPS-2 is listed as a separate object (and the only object from the Spaceflight manifest apart from SHERPA-FX), so I guess it's going to be launched outside of SHERPA.
7. There are almost no satellites listed for which the launch was contracted directly with SpaceX (apart from Capella and D-Orbit ION SCV2). However, there is a "RIDESHARE FLYAWAY HARDWA" object, so maybe SpaceX will use some kind of dispenser. I wouldn't be surprised if it was developed in-house for the rideshare program.

This means there should be over 138 payloads total, which would be a world record (beating PSLV at 104).

The D-Orbit ION is a deployer like Momentus Vigoride or Spaceflight SHERPA.  I wonder if it's carrying the rest of the Doves that aren't on Kelso's list.

New Year, New Launches: 48 SuperDoves To Launch With SpaceX
Mike Safyan | January 21, 2021

Planet is rocketing into the new year with 48 SuperDoves, our Flock 4s, scheduled to fly on SpaceX’s Transporter-1 mission. This rideshare mission launching out of Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida will deliver Flock 4s to a sun-synchronous orbit at approximately 500 km altitude. These 48 SuperDoves bring improvements to image sharpness and quality, plus new spectral bands for analysis. With this launch of 8-band SuperDoves, Planet will continue to provide medium resolution multispectral imagery (3-5m) at a global scale to our customers worldwide.

This marks our sixth launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 and our third launch on their smallsat rideshare program. Just last summer, we successfully launched six SkySats across two SpaceX Starlink rideshare missions and we’re excited to again fly on such a reliable and well-flown launch vehicle.

Follow along on Planet’s Twitter for updates as the launch window nears.

Ad astra!
