Firefly Alpha FLTA004 - Fly the Lightning patch
Alpha FLTA004, called Fly the Lightning, will launch a demonstrator payload for Lockheed Martin in low Earth orbit to help get on-orbit capabilities in the hands of U.S. warfighters faster. As a secondary objective, the mission team will further demonstrate responsive space capabilities by tracking and improving the total working hours required from payload receival to launch readiness compared to Alpha FLTA003, the record-breaking VICTUS NOX mission. During the final launch operations, the mission team will encapsulate and mate the payload to Firefly's Alpha rocket using a similar responsive timeline. Our rapid, iterative operations and robust facilities, including Firefly's payload processing facility at our launch site, allows the team to quickly ready the payload and rocket for liftoff.
READ THE PRESS RELEASE

Payload
Firefly's Alpha rocket will launch Lockheed Martin's new wideband Electronically Steerable Antenna (ESA) technology integrated on a Terran Orbital Nebula satellite bus. Developed within Lockheed Martin Space's Ignite organization using a proprietary design, the ESA payload will demonstrate faster on-orbit sensor calibration to deliver rapid capabilities to U.S. warfighters. The ESA sensor is expected to calibrate in a fraction of the time it takes to operationalize traditional on-orbit sensors, which historically can take months to be powered on, fully calibrated and ready to perform their mission.

#FLTA004 update: Our next Alpha flight called Fly the Lightning will launch a dedicated payload for @LockheedMartin as we continue to support the responsive space needs of our customers. This mission will help get on-orbit capabilities in the hands of U.S. warfighters faster. The Firefly team is concurrently ramping up for Alpha FLTA005 for NASA.

ЦитироватьLockheed Martin Technology Demonstration To Showcase Faster On-Orbit Sensor Calibration
Mission to Cut Delivery Time and Bring Capabilities to the Warfighter Faster

Lockheed Martin's latest technology demonstration is designed to showcase a unique, highly producible Electronically Steerable Antenna (ESA) on orbit.
DENVER, Colo., Nov. 27, 2023 – Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) will soon launch a unique wideband Electronically Steerable Antenna (ESA) payload demonstrator to show the company's investment in advanced technology to perform missions faster once on orbit. 
Based on an innovative, proprietary design, Lockheed Martin expects to calibrate this new ESA sensor in a fraction of the time it takes to operationalize traditional on-orbit sensors, which historically can take months to be powered on, fully calibrated and ready to perform their mission.
The payload demonstrator, which will launch aboard Firefly Aerospace's Alpha rocket, extends Lockheed Martin's significant investment in scalable wideband ESA technology development to showcasing an actual on-orbit capability. This technology is critical to future remote sensing architectures.

"Our customers' mission needs and operational tempo have increased dramatically," said Maria Demaree, vice president and general manager of National Security Space at Lockheed Martin Space. "We designed this technology to showcase how a highly producible ESA antenna could be built, launched, and quickly calibrated and fielded on orbit, in support of 21st Century Security."
The ESA payload is built on a novel, scalable design, using highly reliable commercial parts for quick, mass-producibility. For this demonstration, it was integrated on a Terran Orbital Nebula small satellite bus.
The payload, nicknamed Tantrum, was developed in Lockheed Martin Space's Ignite organization, a new team established to target three main missions: exploratory research and development, accelerating the pace of technology development and, lastly, introducing new product innovations. 
"Within the Ignite construct, the payload was developed from early architecture to flight-ready product in 24 months on an accelerated schedule piloting many streamlined agile processes," said Sonia Phares, vice president of Ignite at Lockheed Martin Space. "For this demonstration, Lockheed Martin has invested its own resources and is embracing more calculated risks from initial development through on-orbit operations to bring new technologies to the forefront of space faster and to keep our customers ahead of ready."
The payload demonstrator is expected to launch in December on a Firefly Aerospace Alpha rocket as part of the agreement with Lockheed Martin that Firefly announced in June. Most recently in September, Firefly's Alpha successfully launched the U.S. Space Force's VICTUS NOX responsive space mission following a 24-hours' notice. 
Lockheed Martin also is producing several other self-funded technology demonstrator spacecraft, including Pony Express 2, which will further demonstrate mesh networking among satellites, and the Tactical Satellite, which will demonstrate on-orbit processing, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. These on-orbit demonstrators are part of an ongoing investment plan to showcase technology maturity and new capabilities.
Earlier this year, the company successfully launched and tested its In-space Upgrade Satellite System (LM LINUSS™) demonstrator, which proved how small satellites can help upgrade and sustain space architectures with new capabilities.

Our dedicated, hardworking Alpha launch crew successfully completed a static fire over the weekend. As part of our "test what you fly" approach, these full-duration hot fires verify all systems are GO for launch. Stay tuned for more on Alpha #FLTA004 #FlyTheLightning for @LockheedMartin. https://fireflyspace.com/missions/fly-the-lightning/
Провели статический огневой тест.

Учитывая наименование компании (ФоерФлай) и двигателя второй ступени (Лайтнинг), название полёта специфичное :)

Per the latest update of the FAA's ATCSCC Advisory, it appears Firefly is now targeting Friday, December 22nd, for their next launch attempt of the "Fly The Lightning" mission. Currently looks like weather won't improve for an attempt tomorrow.

  Firefly Aerospace
The Fly the Lightning mission will deploy an Electronically Steered Antenna (ESA) payload developed by Lockheed Martin to demonstrate rapid delivery of on-orbit capabilities for U.S. warfighters. As a secondary objective, the mission team will further demonstrate responsive space capabilities by tracking and improving the total working hours required from payload receival to launch readiness compared to Alpha FLTA003, the record-breaking VICTUS NOX mission.
The Alpha FLTA004 Fly the Lightning mission is prepared to launch no earlier than December 22. The adjusted T-0 is 9:32:30 am PST with a 16 minute launch window.
During the final launch operations, the team will transport the payload faring to the launch pad and mate it to Firefly's Alpha rocket using similar responsive operations to VICTUS NOX. The launch is being observed by members of the U.S. Space Force Tactically Responsive Space team to inform future missions and the requirements for repeatable on-demand launch capabilities.
Fly the Lightning will launch from Firefly's SLC-2 complex at the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California
