Цитата: RocketLabRocket Lab to Launch Most Diverse Mission YetRocket Lab to Launch Most Diverse Mission YetThe mission will deploy 30 satellites to unique orbits using the Electron launch vehicle's Kick Stage space tugThe satellites will enable internet from space, test new methods of deorbiting space debris, and enable research into predicting earthquakesThe launch will also feature a 3D printed mass simulator for Valve's Gabe Newell to raise funds for Starship Children's Hospital Скрытый текст: Long Beach, California. November 2, 2020 - Leading space systems company, Rocket Lab, has today announced its next Electron mission will feature a diverse range of payloads from the United States, France and New Zealand.The mission, which will be Rocket Lab's 16th Electron launch, will lift-off from Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand's Māhia Peninsula during a 14-day launch window that opens on November 16 NZT / November 15 UTC. Rocket Lab's Electron launch vehicle will loft 30 satellites to a sun-synchronous orbit at 500 km altitude for a range of customers, including TriSept, Unseenlabs, Swarm Technologies, Te Pūnaha Ātea - Auckland Space Institute, and Gabe Newell, co-founder of global gaming software company Valve. The satellites span a range of operations, from TriSept's tech demonstration of new tether systems designed to accelerate spacecraft reentry and reduce orbital debris, through to the next generation of maritime surveillance satellites for Unseenlabs, as well as communications satellites for Swarm Technolgies. The mission will also deploy New Zealand's first student-built satellite, the APSS-1 satellite for Te Pūnaha Ātea - Auckland Space Institute at The University of Auckland.A mass simulator will also be fixed to this mission's Kick Stage in the form of a 3D printed gnome created for Valve's Gabe Newell by multi-award-winning design studio Weta Workshop, the creative studio behind Lord of the Rings, Avatar, and Mulan. The unique space component is additively manufactured into the shape of Half-Life gaming icon Gnome Chompski. The mission serves as an homage to the innovation and creativity of gamers worldwide, and also aims to test and qualify a novel 3D printing technique that could be employed for future spacecraft components. ......The DRAGRACER mission will test the effectiveness of new tether technologies designed to accelerate spacecraft reentry and reduce orbital debris at the conclusion of space missions. TriSept has completed the integration of a pair of qualified Millennium Space Systems 6U small satellites, one featuring the tether drag device and one without. The controlled spacecraft should deorbit in approximately 45 days, while the second spacecraft is expected to remain in orbit for seven to nine years, according to Tethers Unlimited, developer of the 70-meter-long (230 feet) Terminator Tape aboard the control satellite.BRO-2 and BRO-3 are the second and third satellites in French company Unseenlabs' planned constellation of about 20 satellites dedicated to maritime surveillance. The first BRO satellite was launched to orbit by Rocket Lab in August 2019. Unseenlabs' constellation enables improved monitoring of activities at sea, such as illegal fishing and anti-environmental behavior. Thanks to a unique proprietary technology, the BRO satellites are the first to be able to independently and precisely locate and fingerprint Radio Frequency (RF) emitters all around the globe, day or night, in any weather condition, and without requiring any special embarked tracking device. With three satellites in orbit, Unseenlabs' clients can now benefit from the shortest revisit time available on the satellite RF geolocation market.The student-built Waka Āmiorangi Aotearoa APSS-1 satellite is designed to monitor electrical activity in Earth's upper atmosphere to test whether ionospheric disturbances can predict earthquakes. The data from this mission will deliver deeper knowledge of these hard-to-access altitudes and drive understanding of how phenomena such as solar wind and geophysical events affect this atmospheric region.Swarm will launch the latest 24 1/4U SpaceBEE satellites to continue building out its planned constellation of 150 satellites to provide affordable satellite communications services to IoT devices in remote regions around the world. Swarm's uniquely small satellites enable the company to provide network services and user hardware at the industry's lowest cost and deliver maximum value to customers across a range of industries including maritime shipping, agriculture, energy, and ground transportation. The SpaceBEES will be integrated into two of Rocket Lab's 3U Maxwell CubeSat dispensers for orbital deployment.Manufactured with support from multi-award-winning design studio Weta Workshop, the unique space component is additively manufactured from titanium and printed in the shape of Half-Life gaming icon Gnome Chompski. The mission serves as an homage to the innovation and creativity of gamers worldwide, and also aims to test and qualify a novel 3D printing technique that could be employed for future spacecraft components. The 150 mm gnome will remain attached to the Kick Stage during all mission phases and will burn up upon re-entry into Earth's atmosphere during the de-orbiting process.

ЦитатаRocket Lab Readies Photon Spacecraft for NASA Moon MissionThe CAPSTONE mission will see Rocket Lab extend its reach far beyond Earth orbit for the first time to deploy an in-house designed and built Photon spacecraft to the Moon.Long Beach, California. December 11, 2020 - Rocket Lab has reached a key milestone ahead of the company's first launch to the Moon, with spacecraft qualification underway for the Photon spacecraft that will transport a NASA satellite into a unique lunar orbit that no other spacecraft has explored before.NASA's Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment (CAPSTONE) will be launched by Rocket Lab's Electron launch vehicle and Photon in Q2 2021. The CAPSTONE satellite will act as a pathfinding precursor for lunar missions, including Gateway, a Moon-orbiting outpost that will provide vital support for a sustainable, long-term human return to the lunar surface under NASA's Artemis program. Rocket Lab's Photon spacecraft, which will act as a trans-lunar injection stage for this mission, has now entered a rigorous qualification test campaign at Rocket Lab's Production Complex, one of the final development milestones before lift-0ff in the new year.To travel more than 380,000 km to the Moon, CAPSTONE will lift-off on an Electron launch vehicle to an initial low Earth orbit. From there, Rocket Lab's in-house designed and built Photon spacecraft, will take the reins to provide in-space transportation, power, and communications for NASA's satellite until separation, when CAPSTONE will continue on its own trajectory to lunar orbit. Photon will also continue to the Moon to conduct a lunar fly-by as a secondary mission. In preparation for the mission, Photon has entered a rigorous test and qualification campaign to subject the spacecraft to conditions similar to those it will experience during launch and in space. This qualification process will see Photon undergo thermal vacuum tests to recreate the extreme variations in temperature experienced in space, as well as vibration tests and acoustic tests to replicate the conditions during launch. Development and testing of the CAPSTONE satellite platform and propulsion system is being undertaken simultaneously by Advanced Space in Boulder, Colorado, Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems in Irvine, California, and Stellar Exploration in San Luis Obispo, California. The satellite is scheduled for integration with the Photon spacecraft in the new year.Though modelers on the ground have studied the unique near-rectilinear halo orbit (NRHO) that CAPSTONE is destined for, no spacecraft has actually maneuvered into it to date. By testing out this halo-shaped orbit, CAPSTONE will help reduce risk for future spacecraft by verifying the orbit's dynamics, while also validating innovative navigation technologies. The NRHO is a gravitationally balanced orbit between the Earth and the Moon, offering stability for long-term missions like Gateway and requiring minimal energy to maintain, making it a perfect staging point for lunar and deeper space missions.Lunar missions have historically required decades of planning, hundreds of millions of dollars in funding, and have been carried out by large spacecraft that require launch on huge rockets. By contrast, the CAPSTONE mission will lift-off less than two years since the project's inception, and at a launch cost of less than $10 million. The launch is supported by the Launch Services Program at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The mission development is funded by the agency's Space Technology Mission Directorate and managed by the Small Spacecraft Technology Program at NASA's Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley."The idea of a dedicated small satellite launch to the Moon was fantasy until Electron and Photon. With CAPSTONE we're demonstrating that lunar and interplanetary missions can be fast, cost-effective, and highly tailored," said Peter Beck, Rocket Lab founder and CEO. "Providing launch, in-space transportation, and satellite buses as a single, integrated mission solution was an ambitious program, but one we're proud to have brought to market. Electron and Photon have unlocked the door for small satellite missions beyond low Earth orbit, enabling an exciting future for easier and cheaper scientific research missions to other planets, asteroids, moons, and more."
