Connecta IoT (4x 6U, Plan-S, Turkey) via Exolaunch

https://twitter.com/gooksel/status/1791826844557209954
Quote from: via Google translate
The first set of satellites from Turkey set out for launch:
• The first batch of 4 satellites of the Connecta IoT Network constellation project, which will provide IoT communication services, were sent to the USA for launch.
• Plan-S System Engineering Manager Gökmen Cengiz:
• On the other hand, we started working on the second 4 satellites. Probably while the first 4 satellites are launched, we will send the second 4 to the USA. We started with 4 satellites, the number will be 8, 12. Then we will increase the numbers. We will launch 8 and 16 satellites
• Our aim is to create a global company originating from Turkey in this field. That's why we will carry out activities to expand constellation and ground services. We will start expansion operations as of 2025

The EagleEye satellite will undergo final tests at a base in California

[translated]
Quote
“The EagleEye satellite has arrived in Los Angeles. Yesterday we received confirmation that the transport procedures had been completed. The mission operator, Exolaunch GmbH, took over the responsibility for transporting EagleEye to the base. Satellite briefing was conducted at the Los Angeles International Airport. Currently, EagleEye is waiting in the warehouse for transport to Vandenberg Space Force Base, where the satellite will be integrated with a SpaceX rocket and ultimately launched," said ISBtech Mazur.

“The EagleEye satellite will still undergo functional tests on site, which will take place after it is transported to the base in California. Their purpose is to verify the correct operation of all satellite subsystems and confirm its ability to perform its function in orbit. Then, the satellite will be integrated with the systems of the launching company, i.e. SpaceX. All activities undertaken on site will be carried out by representatives of ExoLaunch, SpaceX and in cooperation with Creotech Instruments engineers," said the EagleEye project manager.

Iperdrone.0 (6U, Tyvak/ASI)

https://tyvak.eu/missions/iperdrone/
Quote
PROXIMITY OPERATIONS AND HIGH-RESOLUTION IMAGES INSPECTION
The Iperdrone program is funded by the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and aims at developing a Low cost reusable re-entry system able to interoperate with space infrastructures and to integrate space to ground.

The Iperdrone program capitalizes the competencies gained by Italy in development and exploitation of satellites and re-entry systems. The program will foster the national competences in re-entry field at system level, improving the enabling technologies portfolio to pull Italy players closer to the technology frontier. Iperdrone has the overall objective to develop a small autonomous re-entry system able to perform in orbit operations, interoperate with space infrastructures, deliver experiments to users in a short time, re-enter and perform a precision landing.

The Iperdrone program is based on an incremental phased approach, implemented through a series of subsequent projects.

This first mission (Iperdrone.0) is the initial risk-reduction step of a long-term program developing a multi-functional re-entry system able to perform autonomous on-orbit operations. It is a 6U nanosatellite aiming at validating the system performance, GNC algorithms, together with Optical Payload for inspection purposes and cold gas propulsion technology system for proximity operations.

The second project, named Iperdrone.1, will target the system re-entry, focusing on innovative propulsion systems for attitude control and De-orbiting maneuvers and materials and structures for TPS (Thermal Protection System).

The main objectives of Iperdrone.0 are the following:

Demonstrating the capability to acquire images demonstrating capability of external inspection and survey purposes of a reference target;
Demonstrating the capability to perform rendezvous in space with a non-cooperative target;
Demonstrating the capability to perform a maneuver to achieve precisely targeted reentry.
Iperdrone.0 is equipped with the Perseus thruster, a 6 DOF (Degrees Of Freedom) propulsion system developed specifically for this mission. The development of the thruster involved the collaboration of Tyvak International and Technology for Propulsion and Innovation (T4I), Italy, which helped developing the tank, made in additive manufacturing, the fluidic line including phase separator, and the micro-nozzles.

Impulse does not have the FCC license for their second mission yet.  I assume it will slip to the next flight?  If that size is correct for the FOSSA sat, it would be a new form factor for them.

This was filed a few days ago:
Quote
Impulse Space, Inc. (“Impulse”) offers three updates for its pending Impulse-2 satellite license application.

First, Impulse-2 will deploy only one third-party satellite, FOSSASat TAT-O (also known as FO020).1 The following table captures the associated relevant regulatory information.

FOSSASat TAT-O (3U cubesat) FOSSA Systems S.L. (Spain)

Second, Impulse-2 will conduct rendezvous and proximity operations with Starfish Space’s Otter Pup 1 vehicle,2 not the Otter Pup 2 vehicle (as mentioned in the Impulse-2 orbital debris assessment report § 2.9).

Collision probability is limited by designating Otter Pup 1 as a compliant rendezvous target, which will hold an attitude throughout these operations. Otter Pup 1 is currently maintaining the following station-keeping box: average orbital altitude: 490-500 km ± 5 km (station-kept); eccentricity: 0.0000 to 0.0033; and inclination: 97.4° to 97.8°.3 After its deployment, Impulse-2 will ultimately attempt proximity operations at a minimum of ~50 m from Otter Pup 1. Otter Pup 1 will hold an attitude to support Impulse-2 rendezvous and proximity operations. Otter Pup 1 will not perform any slew operations during this period. Once rendezvous and proximity operations are successfully completed, Impulse-2 will initiate an opening rate and ensure no more close approaches with Otter Pup 1 before finishing the remainder of its mission and vehicle disposal.

Should proximity operations need to occur with other satellites (not Otter Pup 1), Impulse will notify the Commission. No others are planned currently.

Third, Impulse has emailed the Impulse-2 ITU filing to FCC staff.
