Цитата: undefinedRocket Lab to Demonstrate Fastest Launch Turnaround to DateRocket Lab to Demonstrate Fastest Launch Turnaround to Date Rocket Lab to demonstrate rapid launch capability by launching next mission just three weeks after previous launchLong 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.
Цитата: undefinedPics Or It Didn't Happen: The Rocket Lab Launch Of Five New SuperDovesMike Safyan | June 15, 2020This 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.Rocket Lab's mission patch for the "Pics or It Didn't Happen" launch.

ЦитатаFaraday-1 by In-Space Missions Faraday Missions29 июн. 2020 г.Faraday-1 is In-Space Missions' first satellite designed to provide access to space at a competitive and affordable cost. The pioneering mission will be carrying 7 payloads from different organisations globally, including Airbus Defence and Space, Kleos Space, Lacuna Space, the Space Environment Research Centre in Canberra, Canadensys Aerospace and Aeternum.
Цитата: undefinedUK SME In-Space launches first in a series of Innovative Smallsat Missions1st July 2020Faraday-1 will provide a turnkey service for commercial customers and research organisationsAccess to space at a competitive and affordable costIn-Space Missions, a UK SME based in Bordon, Hampshire, is preparing for launch of its pioneering mission Faraday-1, the first in a series of satellites that will provide a turnkey service for commercial customers and research organisations wanting to access to space at a competitive and affordable costFaraday-1 will be launched from New Zealand on Friday 3rd July 2020, on one of Rocket Lab's Electron Rocket, with the satellite hosting seven payloads from different organisations.In-Space Missions is a pioneering UK SME, working in the new space arena, providing affordable access to space which historically has been a hurdle for many organisations. The Faraday-1 maiden satellite is set to launch on Friday 3rd July on an Electron Rocket from New Zealand at 21.13.42 UTC, hosting seven payloads from different organisations globally, including Airbus Defence and Space, Kleos Space, Lacuna Space, the Space Environment Research Centre in Canberra, Canadensys Aerospace, Aeternum, and a major industry player.The payloads will demonstrate a range of applications including the Internet of Things (IoT), on-orbit characterisation of an adaptive optics corrected ground-based laser, 360-degree optical video imaging, and RF spectrum monitoring. In addition, Faraday-1 will prototype the vision system and content processing for SpaceTime Enterprises, an In-Space joint venture providing real-time video from space. It will also de-risk key elements of CubeScale, a plug-and-play low cost scaling product that makes use of CubeSat technology. And finally, DSTL will be using the Faraday-1 mission platform to test satellite operations communications for future knowledge-sharing between nations.In-Space Missions CEO, Doug Liddle, said: "We have been working on this pioneering mission for nearly two years, from concept to this point, and can't wait for launch. It has been exciting working with such a broad spectrum of commercial customers and we were very encouraged by the diversity of the payloads on our first launch."It's been an interesting few years, but once everything was shipped to New Zealand and out of our hands, our fingers have been crossed as the days count down. Faraday-1 is the first of many future Faraday satellites, and these will progress using a range of platforms to further improve the economies of scale, while reducing the cost and time for payloads to reach orbit."Airbus Defence and Space UK Managing Director, Richard Franklin, explained: "Our payload hosted on the Faraday-1 satellites is part of our Prometheus programme, testing the next generation retaskable software-defined radio payload. Working with In-Space Missions, we're able to take advantage of their specialist capabilities and agility to develop new technologies and services for customers. Once Prometheus 1 is proven in orbit, we will use it to de-risk future services and in-life support solutions, working hand-in-hand with our SME partners."Graham Peters, Chair of the UKspace, added: "The UK space sector is full of dynamic and burgeoning SMEs with great ideas. In-Space Missions is disrupting the norm in providing access to space which has, to date, been costly and mainly prohibitive, especially for smaller organisations. Their tenacity and creativity to demonstrate affordable access will open the door for many space and non-space organisations with an idea to launch their own satellites."Doug added: "Prior to completing the satellite, we ran a schools competition to design the mission logo. Our maiden satellite is carrying a plaque inscribed with this mission logo, the names of In-Space team, their families and the schools competition winners. In addition, we've included the secret gin recipe from our favourite local distillery, Silent Pool Gin. Not many gin providers can say they've been launched into space."In-Space Missions has also signed a Public Private Partnership (PPP) programme with the European Space Agency (ESA) worth €10M to develop the Faraday Second Generation capabilities to become a Service Mission Provider (SMP) and fly two microsatellite validation missions in low Earth orbit. The PPP programme is co-funded under the ESA ARTES Pioneer programme, and is part of the Partners Projects.Further informationWe will be providing ongoing updates about the launch, so you can follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn, as well as on our News & Video blog.

ЦитатаRocket Lab Mission Fails to Reach OrbitRocket Lab Mission Fails to Reach OrbitLong Beach, Calif. July 4, 2020: Following a successful lift-off, first stage burn, and stage separation, Rocket Lab experienced an anomaly during its 13th Electron mission 'Pics Or It Didn't Happen.'The issue occurred approximately four minutes into the flight on July 4, 2020 and resulted in the safe loss of the vehicle. As a result, the payloads onboard Electron were not deployed to orbit. Electron remained within the predicted launch corridors and caused no harm to personnel or the launch site. Rocket Lab is working closely with the FAA to investigate the anomaly and identify its root cause to correct the issue to move forward."We are deeply sorry to our customers Spaceflight Inc., Canon Electronics Inc., Planet, and In-Space Missions for the loss of their payloads. We know many people poured their hearts and souls into those spacecraft. Today's anomaly is a reminder that space launch can be unforgiving, but we will identify the issue, rectify it, and be safely back on the pad as soon as possible," said Peter Beck, Rocket Lab founder and CEO. "The launch team operated with professionalism and expertise to implement systems and procedures that ensured the anomaly was managed safely. I'm proud of the way they have responded to a tough day. We're working together as a team to comb through the data, learn from today, and prepare for our next mission." Today's anomaly occurred after 11 consecutive successful orbital launches of the Electron launch vehicle. Rocket Lab currently has more than eight Electron vehicles in production, ready for a rapid return to flight as soon as investigations are complete and any required corrective actions are in place.

Они были выявлены "примерно через четыре минуты после начала полета", уточнили в Rocket Lab. "В результате груз на борту Electron не был доставлен на орбиту", - констатируется в документе. В нем подчеркивается, что при аварии никто не пострадал, ущерба стартовому комплексу нанесено не было."Мне невероятно жаль, что мы сегодня не смогли вывести на орбиту спутники наших клиентов, - отметил глава Rocket Lab Питер Бек. - Будьте уверены, мы выясним, в чем была проблема, исправим ее и снова вернемся на пусковую площадку".В Rocket Lab подчеркнули, что ранее 11 запусков Electron подряд были успешными. К настоящему времени, как отмечается на сайте компании, она вывела на орбиту 53 космических аппарата. Свою первую ракету Rocket Lab запустила в мае 2017 года, но попытка также оказалась неудачной - груз так и не был доставлен на орбиту.
Цитата Jonathan McDowell @planet4589 2 ч. назадBased on data from the webcast it looks like the Electron reached only a -5500 x 195 km x 97 deg orbit, well short of orbital velocity. I estimate impact about 700 km south of Wellington.

ЦитатаРакета Electron американской компании Rocket Lab не смогла выйти на орбиту из-за отказа второй ступени05.07.2020 13:23:01Вашингтон. 5 июля. ИНТЕРФАКС - Ракета Electron, запущенная в воскресенье по московскому времени на орбиту с семью малыми космическими аппаратами, не смогла выйти на орбиту из-за неполадок в работе второй ступени носителя, сообщила американская компания-разработчик Rocket Lab.Видео, которое транслировалось с ракеты, оборвалось через 5 минут 41 секунду после старта, когда уже работала вторая ступень ракеты-носителя и она находилась на высоте 194,8 км.По имеющимся данным, все семь спутников должны были упасть на Землю."После успешного запуска у нас возникла проблема по пути на орбиту, которая привела к потере ракеты и, к сожалению, полезного груза, - заявил Питер Бек, основатель и генеральный директор компании Rocket Lab. - Мы приносим глубокие извинения нашим клиентам, чьи спутники были на ракете".Он сказал, что причины аварии устанавливаются.Запуск двухступенчатой ракеты Electron с миссией, получившей название Pics Or It Didn't Happen, был осуществлен со стартовой площадки компании Rocket Lab на полуострове Махия в Новой Зеландии 21:19 UTC в субботу (00:19 мск в воскресенье).Ракета должна была вывести на круговую околоземную орбиту высотой 500 км спутник CE-SAT-IB компании Canon Electronics Inc, предназначенный для тестирования технологии получения изображений Земли с помощью широкоугольных камер высокого разрешения, пять аппаратов SuperDove дистанционного зондирования Земли с новыми системами для обеспечения более высокого качества изображения компании Planet Labs, а также спутник Faraday-1 6U британской компании In-Space Missions. Скрытый текст: Ракета Electron аэрокосмической компании Rocket Lab может выводить на низкую опорную орбиту до 250 кг груза. Стоимость пуска ракеты составляет от 4,9 до 6,6 млн долларов, что чрезвычайно мало по сравнению со стартом ракет среднего и тяжелого классов. Таким образом, Rocket Lab стремится произвести революцию на рынке ракетно-космических услуг.Всего было осуществлено 13 запусков ракеты Electron, два из которых оказались неудачными.

ЦитатаRocket Lab to Resume Electron Launches in AugustRocket Lab to Resume Electron Launches in AugustFour weeks after experiencing an in-flight anomaly, Rocket Lab has identified the issue and received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to return to flightLong Beach, California. July 31, 2020 - Rocket Lab today announced that it has received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to resume launches this month after identifying an anomalous electrical connection as the cause of an in-flight failure on July 4, 2020. With corrective measures underway, the next Electron launch has been scheduled for August from Launch Complex 1. Over the past month, Rocket Lab has collaborated on an investigation with the support of the FAA, the primary federal licensing body for commercial space launch activity. Rocket Lab's Accident Investigation Board (AIB) worked through an extensive fault tree analysis to examine all potential causes for the anomaly that took place late into Rocket Lab's 13th launch.On July 4, 2020, the Electron launch vehicle successfully lifted-off from Launch Complex 1 and proceeded through a nominal first stage engine burn, Stage 1-2 separation, Stage 2 ignition, and fairing jettison as planned. Several minutes into the second stage burn, the engine performed a safe shutdown resulting in a failure to reach orbit. Due to the controlled way the engine shut down, Rocket Lab continued to receive telemetry from the vehicle, providing engineers with extensive data to conduct a robust investigation into the issue. After reviewing more than 25,000 channels of data and carrying out extensive testing, Rocket Lab's AIB was able to confidently narrow the issue down to a single anomalous electrical connection. This connection was intermittently secure through flight, creating increasing resistance that caused heating and thermal expansion in the electrical component. This caused the surrounding potting compounds to liquefy, leading to the disconnection of the electrical system and subsequent engine shutdown. The issue evaded pre-flight detection as the electrical connection remained secure during standard environmental acceptance testing including vibration, thermal vacuum, and thermal cycle tests. Peter Beck, Rocket Lab's founder and CEO, said the issue had never been observed before across the company's previous 12 Electron launches. "The issue occurred under incredibly specific and unique circumstances, causing the connection to fail in a way that we wouldn't detect with standard testing. Our team has now reliably replicated the issue in test and identified that it can be mitigated through additional testing and procedures."He added that the Rocket Lab team is immensely grateful for the continued support of our customers and the FAA as the company worked meticulously through the flight investigation. "It's a testament to Electron's track record of reliability that the FAA has approved us for return to flight already. Electron was the 4th most frequently launched rocket in the world last year and prior to the anomaly we had deployed 53 customer payloads to orbit without fail. Returning to the pad with an even more reliable vehicle for our mission partners is our top priority."Rocket Lab is now set to return to the pad in August to launch a dedicated mission from Launch Complex 1 Pad A on New Zealand's Māhia Peninsula. Specific details of the launch window and customer will be provided in the coming days.
