Rocket Lab to Demonstrate Fastest Launch Turnaround to Date

Rocket Lab to demonstrate rapid launch capability by launching next mission just three weeks after previous launch

Long Beach, California. 15 June 2020 - Satellite manufacturer and global leader in dedicated small satellite launch, Rocket Lab, has today announced its next Electron mission is scheduled to launch just three weeks after its most recent mission in a demonstration of the company's rapid launch capability.

The mission, 'Pics Or It Didn't Happen,' is scheduled to launch from Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 Pad A on New Zealand's Māhia Peninsula no earlier than 3 July, 2020 UTC-- just days after the successful launch of Rocket Lab's most recent mission, 'Don't Stop Me Now,' on 13 June, 2020 UTC. The back-to-back missions will represent Rocket Lab's fastest turnaround between missions to date.

'Pics Or It Didn't Happen' will deploy seven small satellites to a 500km circular low Earth orbit for a range of customers, including Spaceflight Inc.'s customer Canon Electronics, as well as Planet and In-Space Missions.

The primary payload aboard this mission, Canon Electronics Inc.'s CE-SAT-IB, was procured by satellite rideshare and mission management provider Spaceflight Inc. The mission objective for the CE-SAT-IB satellite is to demonstrate Canon Electronics Inc.'s Earth-imaging technology with high-resolution and wide-angle cameras, as well as test the microsatellite for mass production.

The next five spacecrafts manifested for this mission are the latest generation of SuperDove satellites manufactured by Planet, operator of the world's largest constellation of Earth-observation satellites. Planet's satellites are capable of imaging the Earth's entire landmass on a near-daily basis. This unprecedented dataset helps researchers, students, businesses and governments discover patterns, detect early signals of change, and make timely, informed decisions. These five SuperDoves, Flock 4v, are equipped with new sensors to enable higher image quality with sharper, more vibrant colors and accurate surface reflectance values for advanced algorithms and time-series analysis.

The final spacecraft aboard Electron for this mission has been supplied by British small mission prime, In-Space Missions. The Faraday-1 6U CubeSat is a hosted payload mission providing a low-cost route to orbit for start-ups, institutions, and large corporate R&D groups.  In addition, it provides a first flight demonstration of In-Space's own software-defined payload that will enable uploadable payload capabilities on future missions.  Faraday-1 is the first flight of the Faraday service with four future satellites already under contract.

Peter Beck, Rocket Lab founder and CEO, says launching missions just days apart demonstrates Rocket Lab's unique capability to provide dedicated and responsive space access to small satellite customers.

"Rocket Lab has eliminated the small sat waiting room for orbit. We've focused heavily on shoring up our rapid launch capability in recent years and we're proud to be putting that into practice for the smallsat community with launches just days apart," said Mr. Beck. "We're excited to continue  expanding our responsive space capability with our third launch pad coming online before the end of the year, as well as the continued growth of our Photon satellite program that enables our small sat operators to do more, spend less, and get to orbit faster."

With a new Electron launch vehicle built every 18 days, Rocket Lab remains on target to deliver monthly launches for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021, including the company's first launch from Launch Complex 2 for the U.S. Space Force in Q3 and a mission to the Moon for NASA aboard Electron and Rocket Lab's spacecraft bus platform Photon in 2021.

Pics Or It Didn't Happen: The Rocket Lab Launch Of Five New SuperDoves

Mike Safyan | June 15, 2020

This June and July will be busy times for the Launch and Satellite Operations teams at Planet. In addition to the successful launch of three new SkySats this past Saturday (with three more launching this summer), we have another five SuperDoves (Flock 4e) launching on Rocket Lab's "Pics or It Didn't Happen" Electron launch later this month. It'll be good to see our Doves back on New Zealand soil (at least temporarily), and we plan to have the pics to prove it.


Here is a SkySat image of the Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 spaceport, which can be found on New Zealand's North Island at the southern tip of the Māhia Peninsula. The image was collected on June 6, 2020. © 2020, Planet Labs Inc. All Rights Reserved.

The first time we launched with Rocket Lab was with our Dove Pioneer satellite in January of 2018 on their "Still Testing" flight, which was their first launch to orbit. Rocket Lab has had an amazing track record of success since then, with 10 successful flights in a row and a lot of experience delivering customers to space.

The Flock 4e SuperDoves (fun fact: the "e" in "Flock 4e" stands for electron!) will lift off from Rocket Lab's Launch Complex 1 Pad A in New Zealand and will be deployed into an altitude of approximately 500 km, morning-crossing Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO) to join the rest of the in-orbit SuperDove fleet.

Seven payloads.
Eight customers.
One of the highest performance per kg satellites ever built.
Faraday-1 has left the building.

Next stop Mahia, New Zealand and a date with a @RocketLab Electron rocket.

Astounding work by the team!

We're excited - our next mission is just 18 days away! Our 13th mission will launch satellites for @SpaceflightInc, @planetlabs and @Heads_InSpace. With most of the payloads conducting Earth-observation, we've named this one 'Pics Or It Didn't Happen.'

We're at L-9 days until the #PicsOrItDidntHappen mission and five @planetlabs SuperDoves are headed to LC-1 for integration! We deployed a Dove for Planet on our very first orbital mission in 2018, so it's exciting to be launching the next gen spacecraft for them now.

The SuperDoves will be deployed from Rocket Lab's own Maxwell CubeSat dispensers. At just 1kg each, these flight-proven carbon composite dispensers are optimized for mass and simplicity. And they look awesome
