PlantSat is a 3U CubeSat satellite, built by students and engineers of the University of Chile. Its main mission is to monitor the behavior of a plant in a microgravity environment and in extreme conditions of solar radiation. One of the main goals is to train students about satellite technologies in order to develop advanced human capital. Proposing a UHF downlink using 4k8 GMSK and a S Band downlink using BPSK with Conv. R=1/2,K=7 & R.S. (255,223),115kbps. Planning a SpaceX launch on 24th June 2021 from Cape Canaveral into a 550km polar orbit. More info at https://spel.cl/

I haven't seen anything about the launch trajectory.  This being an SSO launch, is the launch profile going to be similar to a Polar launch - where it will head south from the cape?

I have a feeling it'll start out going southeast, do a dogleg so that it's going due south once over the water, and after stage separation and fairing deploy, the second stage will do a final dogleg to the southwest.

Map visualization of Transporter-2 Launch Hazard Areas based on issued NGA-NOTMAR and FAA-NOTAM messages, valid for NET 25 Jun in window between 18:56-20:44 UTC, alternatively 26-29 Jun.

LZ1 landing for B1060.8 booster.
Extra drop area in Nassau information region (red) in case of boostback burn failure or second stage startup failure.
Estimated fairing recovery position 605km downrange in southern (orange) area north of Cuba (Havana/ACC).
Groundtrack raw estimation of Stage2 dogleg maneuver to polar orbit azimuth.
Stage2 debris reentry during second orbit in area north of Kerguelen Islands.

Is anyone able to add to this great map the location of staging and the boostback burn?
That might help people trying to see it from the shore.
What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?

Here's my best guess. If the sky is clear, you should see the second stage due east, at increasing elevation, at the following times after launch.

PlaceDownrangeTime
Melbourne52kmT+02:26
Vero Beach102kmT+02:57
Port St Lucie142kmT+03:20
West Palm Beach210kmT+03:54
Fort Lauderdale280kmT+04:25
Miami320kmT+04:42

Staging is between Melbourne and Vero Beach.
