Capella 9 (112kg) is scheduled for this flight.

What does the "U" mean when discussing cube or small sats?

See:

one U is a 10 cm cube.

Thanks. 

So, from above, VariSat-1 A/B/C, 3x 6U--does that mean 3 units of 6 cubes fixed together, or 3 sets of 6 separate cubes, thus totaling 18 units deployed?

3 nanosatellites, each with a 6U volume.  I assume each satellite is 3U long by 2U wide.  But it could be 6U x 1U?

These are 3x2x1 units, which fits in half of a standard quadpack deployer.  It's a common size.  There have been a couple 6x1U but they are rare (and do not fit in standard deployers).

On my website i try to keep track of all cubesat projects in all form factors. I think this might help to show, which shapes the cubesats can appear.

There was a 16U (Sen) on the last Transporter.

This seems to suggest that Alba Cluster 6 was delayed from Transporter-5 to Transporter-6.

[cross-post]

AMSAT-EA partners with Alba Orbital for second SpaceX launch of 2022 [dated Feb. 15]

Quote
Following the mission success of Alba Cluster 3 & 4 in the new year, Alba Orbital and AMSAT-EA (Spain) today announced a rideshare agreement to launch another PocketQube satellite (‘URESAT-1’) on-board Alba Cluster 6 in Q4 2022, a project managed by AMSAT-EA, a non-profit amateur radio association, on behalf of Union de Radioaficionados Españoles (URE), the Spanish Radio League Association. The mission is scheduled to fly via SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch vehicle using Alba Orbital’s flight-proven AlbaPod to deploy the pico-satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO).

URESAT-1 – A chess playing ham radio satellite [dated Feb. 18]

Quote
Intensive work is underway to make URESAT-1 available before the end of the year. If all goes according to plan, URESAT-1 will launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon-9 rocket from Cape Canaveral in October.

Launching June 1 to 525km SSO.  I'm guessing it might be this mission?  Someone forgot to update the launch information on the ODAR.

CPOD (aka Tyvak-0032/Tyvak-0033)

0293-EX-CN-2022

another filing for same sats.  ODAR still mentions Minotaur as launch vehicle, so maybe not on this flight?

Spaceflight Now is showing this launching on June 1st from SLC-4E, which would be a first for a Transporter mission.

Orbital Sidekick refiled their FCC paperwork, still targeting this launch for the first two satellites.  I think it's unlikely that they'd get their license by the time the satellites need to be integrated.

Same from the SFN Launch Schedule update, March 25 (one of many updates on said date).

With SpaceX’s rideshare launch business booming, the launch of Transporter 5 is just two months from today.

Transporter 5 was originally slated to launch from Vandenberg, but has recently been moved back to Cape Canaveral.
