Possibly Transporter-5 and Transporter-6 (as a rideshare missions isn't currently planned for Q3 2022).

We took an important step for Plan-S today. In 2022, we signed an agreement to send 3 test satellites into orbit. The first one will be sent in Q3 and 2 units will be sent with SpaceX Falcon 9 in Q4.

That doesn't actually say the Q3 flight is with SpaceX

It might. Depends on how accurate is the auto translation.

Still some uncertainty remaining if Vigoride will be onboard:

Quote
Subsequent to the close of the quarter, we signed a Launch Services Agreement that reserves space for Vigoride on SpaceX’s Transporter-5 mission, which is targeted for June of 2022. While securing space on the manifest is an important step, our plan to launch in June remains subject to the receipt of licenses and other government approvals, and successful completion of our current efforts to get the system ready for flight.

It sounded to me when I was reading that like they're skipping to Vigoride 3, but not 100% sure.

Confirmed to be Vigoride 3.

Quote
The company is currently building the Vigoride 3 tug that will launch on that mission. Rood said the vehicle is undergoing “some rework” after system-level tests in advance of thermal vacuum testing. “We expect Vigoride 3 to be fully qualified in the first half of the year, before our planned inaugural launch,” he said.

That mission will largely be a demonstration of the vehicle, although he said it will also carry some customer payloads and generate a “small amount” of revenue. “However, the primary goals of the mission are to test Vigoride on orbit, learn from any issues that we encounter, and take important steps towards establishing the viability of our initial market offering.”

He indicated that two earlier Vigoride vehicles built and tested by Momentus will remain on the ground. “We’ve learned a significant amount from production of these initial vehicles that we plan to retain in storage and potentially use for testing as we apply the lessons learned to future Vigoride vehicles that we plan to fly.

[AuManufacturing] SKYKRAFT ANNOUNCES SECOND 2022 MISSION ABOARD SPACEX ROCKET
Quote
UNSW Canberra-based air traffic management startup Skykraft has announced the planned upcoming launch of a second tranche of its satellites aboard a SpaceX rocket, scheduled for October 2022.
...
The June mission will feature a 300-kilogram craft, carrying an unspecified number of its own small satellites, plus planned payloads for Australian National University (ANU), CSIRO, Valiant, University of Melbourne, and Swinburne University.

GHGSat to launch three spacecraft on Falcon 9

Quote
GHGSat, a Canadian company planning a constellation of satellites to monitor greenhouse gas emissions, announced Dec. 8 it will launch its next three satellites on a Falcon 9 in mid-2022.

The company said the three nanosatellites, GHGSat-C3, -C4 and -C5, will go on SpaceX’s Transporter-5 rideshare mission scheduled for the summer of 2022. The company did not disclose the terms of the contract.

SAT-STA-20211216-00195

Vigoride 3 will do several orbit maneuvers, including some before deploying the last payloads.  After separating from launch vehicle they will deploy the cubesats except for Selfiesat.  They will raise to 603km circular, then they will drop to 525km circular and deploy the rest of the payloads, before trying to reach 350x1050km.

   Vigoride 3
      Stork-6, -7 (2x 3U, SatRevolution, Poland)
      GOSSAMER-PICARD (1U, Lunasonde, UK)
      REVELA (3U, ARCA Dynamics, Italy)
      DISCO (1U, Aarhus University, Denmark)
      SELFIESAT (1U, OrbitNTNU, Finland)
      Two Fossa PocketQube deployers
         FOSSASAT-2E (7x 2P, FOSSA Systems, Spain)
         Veery FS-1 (1P, Care Weather Technologies, US)
         TRS13 (1P, Paul Kocyla/DL1UAC, Germany)

Also Vigoride VR-5.  Slightly different body dimensions, much less propellant (51kg vs 120kg on VR-3), only 3U of payloads, but doing a similar routine of orbit changes: deploy from launcher, release payloads, up to 603km, then lower perigee to 350km and increase apogee to 1050km.

   Vigoride VR-5 (326.7kg launch mass, 51kg is water propellant)
      ORESAT0.5 (1.5U, Portland State Aerospace Society, US)
      BRONCOSAT-1 (1.5U, Bronco Space, US)

After having their first application denied for paperwork inconsistencies, Orbital Sidekick is back with a new filing for their GHOSt constellation.  Each satellite is 91.4kg with a 15" separation band.  Launching in pairs on SpaceX rideshares, GHOSt-1 and -2 are now targeting this launch.  More should be on Transporter 6 (they mention trying to deploy all six by the end of 2022).

SAT-LOA-20211217-00198

This filing shows 1:30pm LTDN for the deployment orbit, and the Momentus filing shows 01:00 LTAN.

A Polish-German research project will fly into space aboard an Elon Musk rocket
Quote
Scanway and German Orbital Systems are working on a joint space mission. In 2022, they want to send a satellite with a telescope and an innovative diagnostic system into orbit.

Scanway is preparing a payload that will fly into space: a high-resolution telescope and a self-diagnostic system for the satellite that works during the flight. Both devices will be placed on the Cubesat 6U satellite, which will be prepared by German Orbital Systems.

If all goes to plan, the satellite will be launched into orbit in June / July 2022 aboard SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket.

The mission called STAR VIBE will allow to check how space conditions - i.e. UV radiation, vacuum, temperature changes and microgravity - affect electronics, collecting data from optical sensors, their processing and saving.

Looks like BlueWalker 3 was moved from Transporter-4 to Transporter-5.

https://www.satellitetoday.com/launch/2021/12/06/ast-spacemobile-pushes-back-bluewalker-3-satellite-launch/

Quote
AST SpaceMobile was set to launch with SpaceX between March 1, 2022 and April 30, 2022, and has now submitted a rebooking notice for a revised launch window targeting summer 2022. The final launch timing is dependent on SpaceX.

The company cited needing additional time for assembly, testing, and final launch preparation as the reason for the delay.

SelfieSat [2U] is being built by the student organization Orbit NTNU and will be launched in the summer of 2022 by SpaceX.

I can confirm that this is true. I am working as a system engineer on the satellite. It's built by a Norwegian student volunteer group, that is financially supported by several small companies. We are independent and not in a direct relationship with any university. This satellite will be able to give free selfies from space, taken with our onboard camera that is extended in front of a screen.

Lynk said in an FCC filing that their next two sats are launching in July, I'm guessing that's this flight.
