EU agrees US deal to launch satellites with Elon Musk’s SpaceX

Quote
The European Union on Tuesday signed off on the terms of a security deal with the United States that will allow it to pay Elon Musk's SpaceX to launch its satellites.
...
The security deal is due to be formally signed with the U.S. next week and the plan is to ship the Galileo satellites, each weighing roughly 700 kilograms, to the U.S. on March 27, one diplomat said.

The first launch of two satellites would then take place in the second half of April with the second launch scheduled for July, Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton previously told POLITICO.
...
To assuage fears from some countries — notably France — that it could become commonplace to launch satellites using SpaceX rather than Ariane, the security pact will expire in 2027.

“With Genesis and LEO-PNT we are responding to rapidly growing needs for more resilient and precise navigation and ensuring Europe leads global satellite navigation, the largest downstream space market. I am excited to see our competitive industry bring these two missions to life”, says Javier Benedicto, ESA Director of Navigation.

The contract for Genesis amounts to € 76.6 million. A consortium of 14 entities led by OHB Italia S.p.A. (IT) is tasked with developing, manufacturing, qualifying, calibrating, launching and operating the Genesis satellite, including all its payloads. This mission is supported by Italy, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Hungary and the UK. The Genesis satellite is planned to launch in 2028, followed by years of scientific exploitation.

For LEO-PNT, two parallel contracts of € 78.4 million each have been signed for two end-to-end low Earth orbit positioning, navigation and timing (LEO-PNT) in-orbit demonstrators. The contracts include the design and development of satellites and payloads, ground segment, test user segment and satellite launches, operations, experimentation and demonstration of services with end users.

One of the contracts for LEO-PNT demonstrator is led by GMV Aerospace and Defence S.A.U. (ES), as overall system prime and OHB System AG (DE) as space segment prime and core partner. The other contract is led by Thales Alenia Space France S.A.S (FR) as overall system prime and Thales Alenia Space SPA (IT) as space segment prime. The two consortia involve over 50 entities from 14 countries, including industrial actors with a long heritage in space, together with new actors following novel approaches to space - a combination of space primes, midcaps and SMEs, also engaging representatives from end-user communities.

The first LEO-PNT satellite is planned to launch within 20 months from kick-off and the complete constellation to be in orbit before 2027.

US, Germany Partnering on Mission to Track Earth’s Water Movement
Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Mar 19, 2024

NASA and the German Space Agency at DLR (German Aerospace Center) have agreed to jointly build, launch, and operate a pair of spacecraft that will yield insights into how Earth’s water, ice, and land masses are shifting by measuring monthly changes in the planet’s gravity field. Tracking large-scale mass changes – showing when and where water moves within and between the atmosphere, oceans, underground aquifers, and ice sheets – provides a view into Earth’s water cycle, including changes in response to drivers like climate change.

With the international agreement signed in late 2023, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment-Continuity (GRACE-C) mission will extend a nearly 25-year legacy that began with the 2002 launch of the GRACE mission. The GRACE-Follow On (GRACE-FO) mission succeeded GRACE in 2018. GRACE-C is targeting a launch no earlier than 2028.

...
More About the Mission

JPL manages the GRACE-C mission for NASA and will procure the two spacecraft from Airbus Defence and Space, the company that built the satellites for the GRACE and GRACE-FO missions. Development and construction of the LRI system will be led by JPL, which is managed for NASA by Caltech in Pasadena. The German contributions are funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The German Space Agency at DLR will manage the German contributions to GRACE-C, providing the LRI optics subsystems; mission operations; telemetry, tracking, and command; the ground data system; the laser retroreflectors to help with satellite positioning; the launch vehicle; and launch services.

I don't know where they get their data from. But according to Latitude themselves the maiden launch of the first version of Zephyr is planned NET 2025. Linkedin Latidude Jan. 2024 Series B | Latitude closes 30M series B

On a positive side note. I think Latitude could still bring to market the Boreal. But my idea is the first stage of the Zephyr as guided suborbital launcher. Simular to Rocketlab developed Electron into HASTE.

In a followup MSR town hall meeting, NASA's Sandra Connelly outlines the revised architecture that would allow a 2040 sample return: Earth return orbiter launch in 2030, sample retrieval lander (now with an RTG) launching in 2035. The Perseverance rover would return to Jezero Crater in 2028 and go into "quiescent" mode to await the lander.

The ultimate goal of analysing martian samples here on Earth will be scientifically transformative, but the road to get there is extremely complex. NASA's Mars Sample Return mission is a cornerstone of @ESA's Mars exploration programme and an important complement to our Rosalind Franklin Rover mission. ESA remains fully committed to its partnership with NASA in this ground-breaking endeavour. We'll carefully review NASA's revised architecture to ensure the best path forward for MSR's success.

ESA selects four new Earth Explorer mission ideas (EE12)

Quote
The four selected mission ideas

CryoRad would fill an important gap in observations of the cryosphere through the direct measurement of low-frequency passive-microwave brightness temperatures using a novel broadband radiometer. From these novel measurements key parameters such as the temperature profile of ice shelves, sea-ice thickness and sea-surface salinity in cold waters can be determined to improve our understanding of key processes in the polar regions. The mission would complement the upcoming Copernicus CIMR, CRISTAL and ROSE-L missions.

ECO would measure the difference between incoming solar radiation and outgoing radiation, which defines Earth’s energy ‘imbalance’, and which fundamentally controls Earth’s climate system. It would be the first time that this imbalance has been measured directly and would help reveal the future trajectory of the climate decades earlier than relying on monitoring global temperature and sea-level rise, as is currently the case. The unique concept envisages a satellite constellation, each carrying four wide field-of-view radiometers to ensure unprecedented coverage, accuracy and stability.

Hydroterra+ would be placed in geostationary orbit, which is unusual for an Earth-science radar mission. From this fixed position above the equator, the satellite’s C-band synthetic aperture radar would deliver data twice a day over Europe, the Mediterranean and northern Africa to understand rapid processes tied to the water cycle and tectonic events in these regions.

Keystone would provide the first direct observations of atomic oxygen in the altitude range of 50–150 km using a unique combination of limb-sounding techniques. These measurements together with observations of composition, temperature and winds would allow scientists to study the processes that drive the variability and energy balance of the mesosphere-lower-thermosphere region of the atmosphere, also looking at the impact of solar cycles and space weather.

These concepts will now undergo assessment phase studies, which will last about 18 months. After this, further down-selections will be made before the successful Earth Explorer 12 mission is selected for implementation
