Is there an official SpaceX logo for this mission and/or Transporter missions in general?

During this mission, dubbed “DASHING THROUGH THE STARS”, ION will deploy customer spacecraft, perform the in-orbit demonstration of third-party payloads, and validate several innovative features that will be available to customers on future missions.

After completion of the usual Launch and Early Orbit phase (LEOP) operations, ION will begin its primary mission, deploying the satellites. This mission’s manifest again includes clients from around the world, like Lockheed Martin, with a satellite developed in collaboration with the University of Southern California Space Engineering Research Center for the testing of complex vision processing algorithms, SatRevolution, with a group of satellites for Earth Observation and scientific purposes, and the Czech Aerospace Research Centre (VZLU) in cooperation with Spacemanic, with a satellite testing technologies for future missions of the Czech satellite constellation.

Once the deployment phase is completed, ION will begin the on-orbit testing of thirdparty payloads, including the second phase of testing of D-Orbit’s cloud platform designed to provide distributed high-performance data analytics computing and storage capabilities in space. For this mission, D-Orbit is working in collaboration with Unibap and the European Space Agency (ESA) who are supporting the in-orbit test of a hyperspectral electro-optical instrument developed by research institution VTT. This platform allows third parties to upload and execute cloud applications and AI workloads to process images as soon as they are created, allowing results to be sent to users in record time. The first test campaign, which took place during ION’s previous mission, successfully executed 23 separate SpaceCloud compatible applications from a variety of partners.

This on-orbit testing phase of the mission will also include the validation of ARCA by CYSEC SA, a hardened operating system with a built-in scamgraphic service and key management system to provide end-to-end cyber security protection for satellite communications.

This is specifically for ICEYE US (there may or may not be other ICEYE satellites too).

Quote
Integration and Launch Dates
ICEYE plans to launch its first satellite onboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Florida on December 4, 2021.  ICEYE expects that its satellite will be integrated into the launch vehicle on or about November 21, 2021.

SAR Imaging in the 9300 – 9900 MHz Band
ICEYE clarifies that a nominal SAR image collection lasts for ten seconds, and each satellite will be limited to 180 images per day.  This means that the maximum imaging time for each satellite will be 2700 seconds per day, corresponding to 3.125% of the day.  Bandwidth to be used for SAR will be up to 600 megahertz.

Is it possible ICEYE is also on CRS-24?  (12/4 recently mentioned launch date for CRS-24)  Do we know when the next IROSA delivery to ISS?

Do we know which ICEYE satellite of the two is ICEYE US?

Here is a comparison of the webcast telemetry from Transporter-2 and 3.

They are very similar, and the dip in S2 acceleration from about 160s to 235s corresponds to the dogleg also visible in the Mission Control Audio webcast.

Neat!
One difference is the apparent duration of staging.
T-2 shows 10 seconds
T-3 shows 15 seconds
The 5 second difference would represent a significant  amount of additional gravity loss, over 40 m/s
Is this just “false precision” beyond the resolution of the data?

Edit: swapped flight identifications

What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?

Spaceflight Now is listing Dodona as the last payload on ION.  Does anyone see another source for this?

https://spaceflightnow.com/2022/01/12/spacex-preps-for-first-of-four-transporter-rideshare-launches-this-year/

USC Launches its 3rd Satellite into Space [dated Jan. 13]

Quote
Satellite Dodona, with its novel Lockheed Martin La Jument payloads, is part of SpaceX’s Smallsat Rideshare Program, will ride Transporter 3 mission to space

Ridesharing remains a popular way to get around in Los Angeles, but what about ridesharing to get to space? The SpaceX Smallsat Rideshare program offers a viable and affordable option to launch up to 200 kg into a sun-sychronous, low Earth orbit. That is why, along with approximately 80-90 other satellites, USC’s Dodona satellite—it’s third ever—hitched a ride on SpaceX’s latest mission, Transporter 3 this week.

Partner Lockheed Martin supported USC students (graduate and undergraduate) and faculty to take an internally built Cubesat (measuring 30 cms by 10 by 10, called Dodona) the size of bread box and test Lockheed Martin’s newest payload technologies in orbit, including new software that allows for rapid mission changes while in orbit. This SmartSat™ technology is part of Lockheed Martin’s larger La Jument program, and Dodona is the first is a series of demonstration flights.

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

Till now 14 and 16

By the way is there still a estimate even of the total payload mass

The Transporter missions use the same patch that RocketLover0119 shared.

There you go, peoples of the world! This is what I did from the official livestream. For the lift-off time, I used this little website: https://celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/supplemental/ (visited when it had info from the date and time stated in the attached image).

Feel free to throw rotten vegetables at me if something in that table is wrong!!

Also, a very big thank you to all of you keeping track of the launches and everything involved in them. Specially one like Transporter-3, so crowded with spacecraft. You are a big help in finding useful information on these subjects!!

Cheers!!!

Define "payload mass".  Do you count the ring structure?  Separation systems and sequencers?  Adapter plates?  Or just the satellites that are deployed?

Although we are lucky enough to have separate telemetry for S1 and S2 now, the S2 data starts a few seconds after SESU, so I can't tell the duration between MECO and SESU from the telemetry alone, unless I start interpolating values, which I'm loath to do. You may find some long range tracking videos that give a better number.

Out of curiosity, which ones of the deployers detached from the third stage and which ones remained attached? I know that for sure the ION SCV one detached but I don't know about the others
