on a Vigoride mission targeted to launch in October 2023. ...  FOSSA will be launching a picosatellite deployer with the capacity for 8 PocketQube satellites as part of its launch brokerage capabilities and services. This deployer will house several 250g 5x5x5 cm satellites serving different IoT, Earth Observation, and demonstration platforms for yet-to-be-announced customers.

I wonder what this means for the other Momentus payloads that were announced to launch on T-9. Would there be two separate tugs, or would stuff be mostly consolidated to one?

It's only one tug, I assume they will combine payloads.

0354-EX-CN-2023  Sidus Space LizzieSat-1 (100kg)

Using Exolaunch 15-inch separation ring.
insertion orbit 500 +/- 25 km, MLTAN 11:30+60, 97.4 deg
satellite has no propulsion

Quote
The LS-1 satellite will have two experimental payloads and two sensors. The first payload, NASA’s ASTRA GPGPU S-A1760, is a 1U (1 kg) payload with a 9W capacity, and is solely a technology demonstrator with no transmit capability. For the LS-1 mission, the ASTRA payload will (i) test and demonstrate an autonomous operations capability onboard LS-1; (ii) implement system intelligence via “onboard thinking” to advance the technology readiness level (“TRL”); and (iii) close several NASA-identified autonomous operation capability gaps and establish a foundation for trusted autonomy. The ASTRA payload flight software will operate on a dedicated payload computer in Flight Following Mode; all power and command signals will be sent to the ASTRA payload via the LS-1 bus operated from the Sidus MCC.

The second payload is an experimental 0.5U (0.5 kg) data processing unit (“DPU”) developed by Exo-Space, Inc., called “FeatherEdge.” FeatherEdge is an image-analysis device that is intended to provide onboard image processing using machine vision algorithms contained within the DPU to detect objects within its field of view. During the LS-1 mission, the FeatherEdge payload will seek to demonstrate: (i) basic operations, (ii) machine vision processing of optical sensor data; (iii) a capability to update existing data processing models; and (iv) the ability to add new data processing models. All power and command signals will be sent to the FeatherEdge payload via the LS-1 bus operated from the Sidus MCC.

LS-1 will also host two sensors: the Dragonfly Gecko and Satlab Polaris automatic identification system (“AIS”). Dragonfly Gecko is an optical camera that will be used to image planet Earth during optimal photography conditions (daylight, nadir pointing, no cloud cover). The camera is operated by Sidus and licensed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (“NOAA”). Satlab Polaris sensors collect data from marine automatic tracking systems to detect ship locations using a VHF receiver (the sensor does not transmit).2

We at Spacemanic are excited to announce our latest project  - VERONIKA.

Our client, Boris Procik, a financier from Slovakia asked Spacemanic to build and launch a 1U nanosatellite - for a unique and personal mission.

Our client has decided to make this nanosatellite the first "family satellite" named after his daughter, Veronika. The 1U nanosatellite will have two cameras and will operate in the amateur radio band, allowing our client to have a personal connection with space exploration. Another curious fact about this mission will be its color - the first-ever pink satellite.

We are thrilled to be a part of the Transporter-9 rideshare mission, scheduled to take place in October 2023. This mission is being organized by SpaceX and will carry several other satellites and payloads to low Earth orbit. The launch of Veronika aboard the Falcon 9 rocket is enabled by our partner Exolaunch.

We are delighted to partner with Exolaunch, whose proven track record in satellite deployment makes them the ideal choice for this mission. We believe that partnerships and collaborations are crucial in the space industry, and we are committed to working with the best in the business to deliver innovative solutions to our clients.

Furthermore, the project is supported by Deutsche Schule Bratislava.

We are honored to be a part of this project, and we look forward to working with our client, and partners to ensure a successful mission.

The announcement of our new client and their 1U nanosatellite mission is a thrilling development for us at Spacemanic, making it the second launch of the year 2023. It highlights the growing interest in space exploration by individuals and small companies, and it underscores the importance of partnerships and collaborations in the industry.

The upcoming launch of Veronika in October 2023 is a momentous occasion for Spacemanic, marking the third Slovak satellite to be launched into space following the successful skCube and GRBAlpha missions.

Grzegorz Zwoliński, CEO of SatRev : In 2023, we will be finalizing a number of exciting projects. In October, together with Space X, we will launch the "Aman-1" satellite, launch two more medium-resolution "STORK" satellites, as well as eight high-resolution satellites based on our revolutionary DeploScope technology.

I'm not sure if any of those other than Aman-1 are actually on this flight?

From how it’s worded in Polish, I would say they are all going to fly with this mission.
GO for launch, GO for age of reflight

I guess that Aman-1 is a reflight of Oman's first satellite

I'm guessing the two STORK sats are #7 and #8? Those were removed from Momentus VR-6.

Thanks for the input, I didn't really want to trust Google Translate too much.

Rumor is CE-SAT-1D (but not 1E) is being shifted to T9.

In order to expand its remote sensing capabilities, ICEYE now seeks authority to launch and operate an additional
eight satellites. Importantly, the satellites in the Second Tranche will be technically identical to the satellites in the First Tranche. ICEYE plans to launch the first satellite of the Second Tranche in October 2023. ICEYE requests that the Commission grant this application prior to August 15, 2023, the date on which ICEYE will ship its first satellite to Cape Canaveral for integration into the SpaceX launch vehicle.

The satellite bus has a total mass of less than 150 kilograms, including propellant. Its smallest dimension is approximately 0.65 meters... The satellites will operate in Low Earth Orbit at an altitude up to 600 kilometers...  Each satellite has an expected operational lifetime of 3 years.

Application.

I wonder what the listed Nov 2023 SpaceX SSO rideshare is.

Loft Orbital has manifested YAM-6 on a Falcon 9 that is scheduled for launch in October 2023. YAM-6 will be launched as a secondary payload. YAM-6 has no on-board propulsion and therefore does not actively change its orbit. Basic physical dimensions are 875 mm x 677 mm x 665 mm with a mass of approximately 90.8 kg. The satellite is composed of the LeoStella bus and the Loft Payload Hub. Loft Orbital will operate the following payloads onboard YAM-6 on behalf of its customers: 1 hyperspectral imager and 1 multi-spectral imager.

Satelliot plans to launch 4 6U satellites on a Falcon 9 from Vandenburg, CA in October 2023. "The SIC-4 (SATELIOT_1, SATELIOT_2, SATELIOT_3 and SATELIOT_4) satellites will be deployed from the OTV ION carrier by D-ORBIT into a 525 km Sun synchronous orbit."

More info including the link to the application and the attachments is in my post on Satelliot pathfinder constellation filing.
