The satellites have been added to the manifest for Rocket Labís upcoming mission, ĎItís Business Timeí, scheduled for launch on November 11 from Rocket Labís Launch Complex-1 on New Zealandís Māhia Peninsula.

The Fleet satellites will join other payloads for the launch:  two Spire Global Lemur-2 satellites, the Irvine CubeSat STEM Program (ICSP) IRVINE01 educational CubeSat, NABEO, a drag sail technology demonstrator designed and built by High Performance Space Structure Systems GmBH and a GeoOptics Inc. satellite, built by Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems.

The Proxima I and II satellites are a pair of identical 1.5 U CubeSats designed and built by Fleet.

Thanks to CLPS, Richards said Moon Express hopes to announce a mission in early 2019 with the hope of going to the moon in 2020.
