SAT-LOA-20240401-00072  XCUBE-1 (6U, Xplore)

Quote
Xplore seeks authorization for XCUBE-1... to provide Earth imaging in hyperspectral bands for various commercial and USG customers. XCUBE-1 is a 6U cubesat manufactured by Exobotics1 with a weight of 10 kilograms. XCUBE-1 is currently expected to launch Q4 2024 thru Q2 2025 window on a Falcon 9 SpaceX launch vehicle with the Bandwagon 2 rideshare platform. It will operate for a nominal five years of mission life starting at a target altitude of 510 km...
Quote
The satellite will be launched aboard the SpaceX Bandwagon 2 launch, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, No Earlier Than October 14, 2024
Quote
Imaging Subsystem: The XCUBE-1 spacecraft will support a Simera HyperScape100 camera with imaging/frame rate of 2600 Hz line rate and a spatial resolution of 4.8 m. The imager will have a GSD of 4.84 m/pixel. The spectral range is 442 nm – 884 nm.

0409-EX-CN-2024  SC1 (16U, GITAI)

Quote
The overall goal of the SC1 mission is to design and develop a custom spacecraft bus and control system in-house and to improve GITAI’s perception, guidance, navigation and control technologies in an orbital environment in anticipation of a 2026 product launch.

The satellite will be launched as a secondary payload aboard the SpaceX Rideshare Bandwagon-2, from Cape Canaveral, FL, no earlier than October 15, 2024. It will be inserted into a circular orbit at 500-600 km, on an inclination from the equator of 45 degrees
...
Following spacecraft commissioning, SC1 will perform maneuver tests to verify the propulsion system’s functionality and performance. After the maneuver tests, SC1 will deploy a tethered payload cube and will observe the cube with two wide field-of-view visual cameras, a 3D LiDAR sensor, a laser rangefinder, and an infrared camera.

The spacecraft is a single unit with the dimensions of 16 stacked 10 cm X 10 cm X 10 cm CubeSat modules (giving an overall dimension of 20 cm X 20 cm X 40 cm.) The total mass will be 19.68 ± 1 kg.
...
Propulsion Subsystem: The propulsion system utilizes one thruster (Dawn Aerospace: CubeDrive 0.8U) with Green Bipropellant (N2O+Propylene) and a self-pressurizing tank. The propulsion system is on board to gain flight heritage and for on orbit testing and calibration. No orbit changing is planned.

3D Recognition Payload Subsystem: The payload complement includes a tethered deployable cube with fiducial and reflective markers on the surface for testing GITAI’s proprietary visual and 3D recognition software. The payload sensor suite includes two wide field-of-view visual cameras, a 3D LiDAR sensor, a laser rangefinder and an infrared camera.

WiFi Payload Subsystem: This payload will test the connection stability of the Wi-Fi to communicate between modules within the spacecraft. The WPEA-352ACNRBI Wi-Fi module on the payload computer will communicate with the Raspberry Pi Pico W Wi-Fi module, in the 2.4GHz band.

Under the agreement, Sidus Space will host HEO’s NEI imager, HOLMES-006, onboard LizzieSat-3, as part of the Bandwagon-2 launch scheduled for November 2024
...
This marks the second agreement between HEO and Sidus Space, as Sidus Space’s LizzieSat-2 will be hosting HEO’s HOLMES-004 on the same launch.

NOAA Gives HEO’s Holmes a Thumbs Up

Quote
NOAA has given Australian non-Earth imaging startup HEO the go-ahead to launch its Holmes camera aboard American sats, the company told Payload.

Quote
HEO’s Tier 1 license is different from other NOAA approvals because it okays only the camera that will ride aboard a sat, while other regulatory licenses approved the entire sat with the imager embedded. Hilary Cohen, HEO’s director of US operations, said it is the first time a standalone remote sensing payload has received a NOAA license.

Quote
What’s next: The first Holmes camera is expected to launch in October on Sidus Space’s LizzieSat 2.

Transporter-11 => Bandwagon-2:
CroCube should be removed from this launch. [translated] [Jun 9]

Quote
Due to a delay by SpaceX, the launch of the first Croatian CroCube satellite was moved to "October at the earliest" this year.

CroCube will be launched on a Falcon 9 rocket, as part of the Bandwagon 2 mission.

This mission involves a launch to an altitude of 510 +/- 20 km, with an orbital inclination between 44° and 46°. Bandwagon 2 is a dedicated rideshare flight that will carry dozens of small microsatellites and nanosatellites for commercial and government users. The launch is contracted, and even though our satellite has been ready for some time, all we have to do is wait and count down to the launch. CroCube will soon be part of the space adventure, contributing to the scientific and technological progress of Croatia.

The launch broker, Exolaunch, specializes in the integration and launch of nanosatellites. CroCube will join other satellites in deployers, special nanosatellite dispensers, and other satellites that will travel together toward American soil. This coordination of different space missions makes Exolaunch a key partner in the process of preparing and launching satellites like CroCube.
