Cross-post: LizzieSat-1 is likely manifested on this flight.

Sidus Space could launch LizzieSat-1 without thrusters [dated Aug. 9]

Quote from: SpaceNews
Sidus Space could launch LizzieSat-1 without thrusters if it can’t get safety clearances in time to deploy its first satellite from the International Space Station early next year.

It is unclear if Sidus can get all NASA approvals to add operational-life-extending thrusters to LizzieSat-1 for a cargo trip to the ISS in February, Sidus chief mission operations officer John Curry said Aug. 8 during the Small Satellite Conference here.

“It’s possible we may end up deciding not to fly the thruster,” Curry said Aug. 8 during the Small Satellite Conference here, so that it can “just get through the safety process and go ahead and fly.

<snip>

LizzieSat-1 was previously slated to launch on a mission to the ISS in October before NASA re-manifested it to February.

While Sidus still plans to launch LizzieSat-1 from the ISS, the company’s flexible deployment capabilities also enable it to leverage rideshare opportunities.

LizzieSat-1 is the first of 100 satellites Sidus is planning for a constellation that would initially provide in-orbit testing services.

The 100-kilogram spacecraft had been set to use a deployer on the ISS that Sidus manages as part of its existing government contractor business.

Moonlighter (3U), deployed after leaving ISS

Quote
The Moonlighter (MOONLIGHTER) program is a technology demonstration in Low Earth Orbit, consisting of a single 3U CubeSat supporting dedicated on-orbit cyber testbed for exercising defensive cyber operations (DCO), the development of cyber tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs), and verifying end-to-end closure of cyber-related kill chains across the space enterprise.

VSCP-1A (3U), VSCP-1B (3U)

Quote
VSCP-1 Mission Objectives:

The VSCP-1 mission is the first in a series of cubesat launch opportunities from Virginia Space in collaboration
with Northrop Grumman. The two spacecraft, have common high level mission objectives:

1. Adhere to CubeSat standards as per CubeSat CDS Rev.13. Adhere to launch vehicle integration
requirements with the Planetary Systems Corporation Canisterized Satellite Dispenser (CSD).
2. For -1B, establish reliable UHF communications with the ground station network for primary Command
and Control (C2) and for -1A, S-Band communications for higher rate payload data downlink, and
Iridium for communication before TLEs are established.
3. Demonstrate payload boom deployment systems on each spacecraft and downlink required telemetry for
payload validation.

In addition, VSCP-1A, built by Old Dominion University (ODU) in collaboration with the US Coast Guard
Academy, will carry an Impedance Probe, a Multispectral Sensor and a Deployable Composite Structure
experiment. VSCP-1B, built by Virginia Tech (VT), will carry the Memory Exposure experiment.
The satellites will be launched as a secondary payload aboard the NG-19 Antares Launch Vehicle Second Stage
(“Antares”), from Wallops Flight Facility, No Earlier Than (NET) February 15, 2023. Antares will insert the
secondary payloads at uniquely low altitudes, 260 km apogee and 170 km perigee, on an inclination from the
equator of 51.6 degrees. Transmission will begin approximately 30 minutes after deployment, and cease when
thermal buildup consumes the spacecraft during re-entry, estimated to occur within 1 week after launch.

These should be the SeaLion and UtProSat-1 cubesats that were supposed to be launched with Cygnus NG-18

Could mean Cygnus NG-20.

These satellites were handed over at the Tsukuba Space Center in June this year and launched to the ISS on NG-19 in November. The image is from when BIRDS-5 was handed over. I hope that the satellite will be successfully deployed and put into operation in the future!

I'm Fujita, in charge of the J-SSOD from the ISS. J-SSOD # 23 will release BIRDS-5, which consists of three satellites : Uganda, Zimbabwe, and #Kyutech . Uganda and Zimbabwe are the first countries to have satellites. Kinki University's SpaceTuna1 will also be released at the same time.

It mentions NG-19 but it also says that they've been launched to ISS in November, maybe it's a typo and they meant NG-18?

This appears to be moving to SpX-28
