Launch service provider prepares new propulsive OTV, Sherpa-LTC1, to deliver payloads to two distinct orbits
SEATTLE – Nov. 9, 2021 — Spaceflight Inc., the leading global launch services provider, announced today it will be launching 13 customer payloads, including four microsatellites and nine CubeSats to Sun Synchronous orbit (SSO) aboard the SpaceX Transporter-3 mission, scheduled to launch no earlier than January 2022 from Cape Canaveral. On this mission, which the company has dubbed 'SXRS-6,' Spaceflight will deploy customer spacecraft to two distinct orbits for the first time using its chemical propulsion orbital transfer vehicle (OTV), Sherpa-LTC1. Capping a momentous year for Spaceflight, this mission will be the third debut of a new class of Sherpa vehicles within 12 months.

Once Sherpa-LTC1 deploys from the Falcon 9 at 525 kilometers, the OTV will begin its primary mission, deploying nine customer smallsat payloads. After commissioning and checking out all systems, which is expected to take about a month, Sherpa-LTC1 will fire up and maneuver to a lower altitude for the secondary mission, deployment at a customer-specified orbit. After dropping to 500 kilometers, the OTV will deploy the remaining four CubeSat payloads. The OTV will then begin its final mission phase, on-orbit testing, and automated maneuvering.
Spaceflight is managing this launch for eight organizations, including returning customers Capella Space, Umbra Space, Lynk Global, Inc., Kleos Space, and NASA. SXRS-6 will also include several first-time customers, including Czech Aerospace Research Centre in partnership with Spacemanic, Space Products and Innovation (SPiN), and Portland State Aerospace Society.
"Each of our Sherpa launches this year has incrementally brought vital learnings that have prepared us to launch Sherpa-LTC1 to execute our first in-space multi-destination mission," said Ryan Olcott, mission director for Spaceflight's SXRS-6 mission. "This milestone mission validates our ability to provide customers with more customized launch options to achieve their mission objectives and get them to their final destination, even when there are no launches that initially meet their specific mission needs. Using our propulsive Sherpa OTVs for last-kilometer delivery is a ground-breaking capability for smallsats."
Featuring a high thrust, bi-propellant, green propulsion subsystem from Benchmark Space Systems, Sherpa-LTC provides a low-cost, rapid orbital transfer for many sizes of small spacecraft and is also capable of hosting payloads on orbit.
"This mission will debut the third model of our Sherpa-NG product line in just 12 months, delivering on the promise of modularity by expanding the range of launches we offer," added Grant Bonin, SVP of business development at Spaceflight. "Maneuvers in LEO are just the beginning. These capabilities and services will play a crucial role in accessing other orbits beyond LEO and developing in-space transportation and various mission services."
In January of 2021, Spaceflight debuted its first Sherpa-NG vehicle, Sherpa-FX1, on the company's SXRS-3 mission aboard SpaceX's Transporter-1. Sherpa-LTE1, the industry's first electric propulsion OTV, flew on the SXRS-5 mission along with its second free flyer, Sherpa-FX2, aboard SpaceX Transporter-2 in June. Collectively, the company successfully launched 50 payloads via three OTVs in 2021.
Spaceflight recently announced a fourth iteration of the Sherpa-NG program — Sherpa-ES, a bipropellant, high delta-V OTV, which the company plans to debut no earlier than Q4 2022 on Intuitive Machines' IM-2 South Pole Mission.  Sherpa-ES will enable Spaceflight to execute rideshare deployments in trans-lunar orbit, low-lunar orbit, and beyond. The GEO Pathfinder rideshare mission will utilize a creative trajectory to slingshot around the Moon and into a geosynchronous equatorial orbit (GEO). This continues Spaceflight's history of industry firsts, including the first fully dedicated SSOA rideshare mission with 64 smallsats on board, the first-ever rideshare mission to GTO with a lunar lander, and the launch of the first-ever electric propulsion OTV.

ЦитатаКомпания Spaceflight, занимающаяся предоставлением услуг по подготовке и запуску полезной нагрузки клиентов, объявила о планах доставить 13 малых спутников и кубсатов на две разные орбиты в миссии SpaceX с помощью своего нового "космического буксира".

Sherpa-LTC1 – это первый буксир Spaceflight с химическим двигателем на борту, который планируется развернуть в рамках массовой миссии по выводу полезных нагрузок по программе SmallSat Rideshare Program - Transporter-3. Запуск запланирован не ранее 10 января 2022 года из Флориды.

В этой миссии, получившей название SXRS-6, с помощью Falcon 9 планируется вывести на орбиту буксир Sherpa-LTC1, который в начале развернёт 4 малых спутника и 5 кубсатов на солнечной синхронной орбите высотой 525 км.

Примерно через месяц после этого Sherpa-LTC1 запустит двигатели на биотопливе для снижения орбиты до 500 километров, где аппарат развернёт оставшиеся четыре кубсата (два кубсата от NASA в рамках миссии LLITED, для изучения плотности ионосферы и термосферы), спутник от Портлендского государственного университета и OreSat0 от Портлендского аэрокосмического общества. Остальные спутники и кубсаты будут представлены 8 компаниями из 4-х стран, среди которых, Capella Space, Umbra Space, Lynk Global, Kleos Space и Чешский центр аэрокосмических исследований.
За последние 12 месяцев Spaceflight запустят уже третью версию буксира Sherpa. Первая версия аппарата Sherpa-FX1 (без двигателя) была запущена в январе 2021, в рамках миссии Transporter-1. Вторая версия Sherpa-FX2, уже с электрическим двигателем, была запущена в июне в рамках миссии Transporter-2.

"Каждая миссия в этом году учила нас чему-то новому, и теперь мы готовы к запуску Sherpa-LTC1 для вывода полезной нагрузки наших клиентов сразу на несколько орбит", — заявил руководитель миссии SXRS-6, Райан Олкотт.

Spaceflight также представили четвёртую версию буксира Sherpa под названием Sherpa-ES, предназначенную для облёта Луны и доставки полезных нагрузок на геостационарную орбиту в одной из миссий SpaceX в 2022 году. Об этой интереснейшей миссии мы расскажем в отдельном посте.

Цитата:У ракеты Илона Маска протек разгонный блок

Запуск разгонного блока Sherpa-LTC на ракете Falcon-9 отложили из-за протечки в двигательной системе. Об этом сообщает компания Spaceflight.

Компания Spaceflight, организатор миссии, заявила, что после интеграции разгонного блока Sherpa-LTC с оборудованием SpaceX, техники обнаружили течь из двигательной установки, изготовленной Benchmark Space Systems.

«На данный момент мы полагаем, что никаких повреждений космических аппаратов заказчиков или проблем безопасности нет, – заявила компания. – Однако мы перешили перестраховаться, и не запускать разгонный блок».

Запуск был запланирован на середину января, в ходе него SpaceX планировала отправить в космос несколько полезных нагрузок. Разгонный блок Sherpa-LTC должен был стать ее частью, и вывести на орбиты 10 кубсатов. Однако сам полет все равно состоится, в ходе него в космос отправятся три более крупных радиолокационных спутника, поскольку они прикреплены к ракете Falcon 9 независимо от Sherpa-LTC.

Разгонный блок направлен обратно производителю для анализа, Spaceflight оказывает помощь в выяснении причин течи.

After successfully integrating customer spacecraft, lifting, and mating Sherpa-LTC1 with the SpaceX hardware, we were informed today of a leak coming from the propulsion system onboard the Sherpa-LTC1 vehicle. We are currently evaluating the situation to assess the impact.

At this time we believe there is no damage to any customer spacecraft or safety concerns, but it is a significant development. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided not to fly the Sherpa-LTC1 on our SXRS-6 mission (SpaceX Transporter-3) targeted to launch in January.

This development impacts 10 customer spacecraft integrated on Sherpa-LTC. The two Capella microsats and one Umbra microsat are unaffected as they are on separate ports. They will fly as expected on the mission.

The customers who are impacted have already been contacted and plans are underway to remanifest them on a suitable launch. We sincerely apologize for the delay to their missions and the inconveniences this situation has created. Spaceflight's top priority is to safely launch our customers' spacecraft. Our mission management team is experienced in managing manifest changes and we are doing everything in our power to find alternative solutions for the affected customers.

While this is not the outcome we were looking for, we're actively working with our propulsion system partner, Benchmark Space Systems, to conduct a root cause analysis. We will be providing updates as new information becomes available.
Так понял, что Sherpa-LTC и 10 КА, что на ней, в этом пуске не летят. Отложили на потом.
На сроки сабжа это не повлияет.

We are deep in the preparations for mission SXRS-6! One of our valued customer payloads on board is Umbra-02. Umbra-02 is the second commercial satellite of an initial planned 24 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite constellation for Umbra: the first, Umbra SAR-2001, launched in June 2021 on our SXRS-5 (SpaceX's Transporter-2) mission. 

Umbra is making access to information about the world easier than ever. Until now, access to high-resolution satellite imagery has been a privilege reserved for a very few. Soon, however, researchers, businesses, and U.S. government partners will have timely access to the highest-quality Earth observation data available in a cost-effective way. Entrepreneurs will be able to use SAR imagery for uses that will benefit humanity, and Umbra is going to open up these floodgates.  
Before Umbra, when customers bought data from satellite imagery providers, it was  sold under restrictive licenses with constraints like "internal use only" or with a significant price increase, a multi-party license with a restricted number of designated users. Umbra flips that sales model on its head. Now customers pay the same whether they are a massive corporation or a fledgling startup. 
"We're thrilled with our one-of-a-kind satellite's performance, which comes from Umbra's patented antenna, which generates an industry-leading 1,200MHz bandwidth," he says. "The Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) technology is capable of seeing at night and through dense clouds to generate the highest resolution radar images ever sold on the commercial market."
Why is Umbra's mission especially important now? "To stay ahead of climate change, wildlife protection, and other major crises and issues, we need a global understanding of what is changing, where, and how fast," says Galpern. "Umbra is built around the idea that by providing easy access to the highest quality commercial satellite data available, we can become an indispensable tool for the growing number of organizations monitoring the Earth, making data-driven decisions about land use, and solving other global issues."   
Umbra knew that rideshare was the way to go when looking at available launch options. "Our unique satellite packs a huge antenna into a small volume, with an overall spacecraft mass under 70kg, and was specifically designed to make use of rideshare. Booking our launch through a rideshare service allowed for the maximum cost effectiveness for delivery of our sub ESPA-class satellite to orbit," says Galpern. In addition to pricing, Spaceflight's ability to provide launch integration support and expertise in interfacing with launch providers and regulatory agencies allowed Umbra's team to focus on their most important task: improving our SAR Mission capabilities. 
"Spaceflight's prior experience with multiple rideshares helped Umbra manage launch integration requirements for our launch. For subsequent launches, Spaceflight and Umbra have worked together to provide a mutually beneficial value proposition that met our expanding launch needs," according to Galpern.
We look forward to seeing Umbra-02 on orbit, helping Umbra fulfill its primary mission of helping customers solve our world's most pressing needs.
