ЦитатаRocket Lab to Launch NASA Funded Commercial Moon Mission from New ZealandThe CAPSTONE mission will be Rocket Lab's first launch to the MoonLong Beach, California. August 6, 2021 - Rocket Lab, the leading launch and space systems company, today announced it will launch the CAPSTONE mission to the Moon from Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand from Q4 2021. It will be Rocket Lab's first launch to the Moon. CAPSTONE (the Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment) aids NASA's Artemis program, which includes landing the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon and establishing a long-term presence there. Скрытый текст: Launching on an Electron launch vehicle and deploying from Rocket Lab's Photon spacecraft platform, CAPSTONE is a 55-pound satellite created by Advanced Space that will serve as the first spacecraft to test a unique, elliptical lunar orbit. As a precursor for Gateway and other Artemis elements, an international and commercial Moon-orbiting outpost that is part of NASA's Artemis program, CAPSTONE will help reduce risk for future spacecraft by validating innovative navigation technologies and verifying the dynamics of this halo-shaped orbit.The mission is the first time Rocket Lab will use its Photon spacecraft platform as a trans-lunar injection stage to place a satellite on a trajectory that will take it beyond Earth orbit to the Moon. After lifting off on Electron to an initial elliptical low Earth orbit, Photon will separate and use its 3D printed HyperCurie engine to provide in-space propulsion to allow CAPSTONE to break free of Earth's gravity and set a course for the Moon. After deploying the CAPSTONE satellite, Photon will continue on its own trajectory to conduct a lunar fly-by, while CAPSTONE will use its own propulsion system to enter a cislunar orbit.Following a three-to-four-month trip to the Moon, the CAPSTONE CubeSat will enter a near rectilinear halo orbit (NRHO), which is a highly elliptical orbit over the Moon's poles. During its six-month primary mission in orbit around the Moon, CAPSTONE will validate the propulsion requirements for maintaining this type of orbit as predicted by models, reducing logistical uncertainties for future missions. It will also test the accuracy of innovative spacecraft-to-spacecraft navigation solutions as well as demonstrate capabilities for commercial support of future lunar missions. The NRHO provides the advantage of an unobstructed view of Earth in addition to coverage of the lunar South Pole.Originally slated for lift-off from Rocket Lab's Launch Complex 2 in Virginia, the CAPSTONE mission will now take place from Launch Complex 1 to support a Q4 launch window....
Цитата: undefinedRocket Lab to Launch Three Back-To-Back Missions for BlackSky from late AugustThe next Electron rocket on the pad is the first of three dedicated missions for BlackSky scheduled for lift-off from late August through September.Long Beach, California. August 10, 2021 - Rocket Lab, a leading launch provider and space systems company, has today announced its next mission is part of a rapid launch schedule of three dedicated Electron missions for global monitoring provider BlackSky.Scheduled to lift-off from Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand's Mahia Peninsula in late August, the 'Love At First Insight' mission will be Rocket Lab's 22nd Electron launch overall and fifth mission of 2021. 'Love At First Insight' is the first in a rapid succession of scheduled Electron launches between late August through September that represent the company's fastest launch turnarounds to date.The 'Love At First Insight' mission is the latest in a multi-launch agreement signed earlier this year for BlackSky between Rocket Lab and Spaceflight Inc., which is providing integration and mission management services for BlackSky. This mission will deploy the eighth and ninth satellites of BlackSky's planned constellation as part of that rapid-launch agreement, with another four Gen-2 smallsats across the two additional Electron dedicated missions to follow.Electron will deploy two of BlackSky's high-resolution, multi-spectral, Gen-2 satellites to low Earth orbit, expanding BlackSky's network in space and offering of real-time geospatial intelligence and monitoring services. BlackSky combines high-resolution images captured by its constellation of microsatellites with its proprietary artificial intelligence software to deliver analytics and insights to industries including transportation, infrastructure, land use, defense, supply chain management, and humanitarian aid."Dedicated launch on Electron means a bespoke service for satellite operators who want control over their schedule and orbital parameters," says Rocket Lab founder and CEO Peter Beck. "Rapid launch with these three back-to-back missions enables BlackSky to fast-track their plans for a constellation that meets the hunger for real-time data produced by multiple images within 24 hours, rather than one image at the same time each day.""We've been partnering strongly with Rocket Lab over the past several months to gain high confidence in a launch campaign that will increase the capacity of our space network," said Brian E. O'Toole, CEO of BlackSky. "This cadence of rapid launches demonstrates the accelerated pace at which we are able to expand our constellation and reinforces our commitment to delivering real-time data and intelligence."The 'Love At First Insight' launch is set to bring the total number of satellites launched by Rocket Lab to 107, joining a collection of successfully deployed satellites from various sectors including Earth-observation, Internet of Things, weather and climate monitoring, academia and scientific research, civil government, defense, and more. Information about the 'Love At First Insight' launch window will be made available in the coming days.
ЦитатаRocket Lab to Launch Finnish Satellite Developing Next-Generation Space Junk Removal TechnologiesLong Beach, California. August 16, 2021 - Rocket Lab, a leading launch provider and space systems company, has today announced it will launch a satellite to test space junk removal technologies for Aurora Propulsion Technologies, a Finnish company dedicated to the sustainable use of space.Lifting-off from Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand's Mahia Peninsula as part of a rideshare mission scheduled in Q4, 2021, Electron will deploy AuroraSat-1 to low Earth orbit in a demonstration of the company's proprietary propulsion devices and plasma brakes that provide efficient propulsion and deorbiting capabilities for small satellites. The CubeSat will validate the water-based propellant and mobility control of its Resistojets that can assist CubeSats with detumbling capabilities and propulsion-based attitude control. AuroraSat-1 will also test its deployable Plasma Brakes which combine a micro-tether with charged particles in space, or ionospheric plasma, to generate significant amounts of drag to deorbit the spacecraft safely at the end of its life.The recently-signed launch agreement provides Aurora with an accelerated on-ramp to space at a critical phase in the company's growth and technology development. Originally manifested to launch on a different rocket and orbital transfer vehicle, this rapid and streamlined space access, combined with the ability of Electron's Kick Stage to precisely deliver payloads to their unique orbits, were decisive factors in Aurora selecting Rocket Lab as the launch provider for their mission."Speed to space is crucial in the development of next generation technologies like Aurora's, made possible by the dedicated team behind Electron that delivers rapid and responsive launch for satellite operators who want to move quickly," said Rocket Lab founder and CEO, Peter Beck. "We're delighted to be working with Aurora to enable new and innovative systems with the safe and sustainable use of space in mind."Aurora CEO, Roope Takala said: "After earlier launch plans fell through, we greatly value Rocket Lab's ability to offer a launch in a flight window starting just three months from our originally planned launch date. The quick response Rocket Lab offered allows us to space prove our technologies this year and keep on track with our development plans."The AuroraSat-1 launch agreement follows a collection of other announced satellites flying onboard Electron including the first ever wooden satellite, WISA Woodsat, developed by Finnish company Arctic Astronautics. The mission is expected to follow on from three back-to-back Electron launches in August and September for BlackSky Global, and the CAPSTONE mission to the Moon in support of NASA's Artemis program.

Цитата: undefinedLong Beach, California. August 18, 2021 - Rocket Lab, a leading launch provider and space systems company, today announced it has signed a rideshare agreement with Scottish / American PocketQube satellite manufacturer, Alba Orbital, to launch a cluster of small satellites designed to demonstrate innovative radio and night-time Earth observation technologies. The four pico-satellites in Alba Orbital's cluster will fly as part of a rideshare mission on Rocket Lab's Electron launch vehicle, lifting-off from Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand's Mahia Peninsula in Q4, 2021. The cluster includes Alba Orbital's own Unicorn-2 PocketQube satellites, as well as the TRSI-2, TRSI-3, and MyRadar-1 satellites for Alba Orbital's customers. Each small satellite carries a unique sensor designed to demonstrate innovative technologies on orbit.Unicorn-2 will be carrying an optical night-time imaging payload designed to monitor light pollution across the globe. Night-time satellite imagery, otherwise known as 'Night Lights' data, provides crucial insights into human activities. This data enables a host of applications such as tracking urbanization and socioeconomic dynamics, evaluating conflict and disasters, investigating fisheries, assessing greenhouse gas emissions and energy use, and analyzing light pollution and health effects.All four PocketQubes will be deployed to a circular orbit by Electron's Kick Stage, a nimble spacecraft that provides in-space propulsion and maneuvering capability to ensure each satellite is deployed to a precise and unique orbit defined by the customer. "We're delighted to be Alba Orbital's mission partner once again," said Rocket Lab Founder and Chief Executive, Peter Beck. "The Alba Orbital team have proven that incredibly small satellites can be highly capable and deliver tangible insights and services back down to Earth at a fraction of traditional satellite costs. Making it faster, easier and more affordable to access space is a mission we share, so we're excited to make it possible with Electron." "It's a pleasure to be working with Rocket Lab again on this exciting mission,'' said Tom Walkinshaw, CEO and Founder of Alba Orbital. "We successfully flew six satellites on board Rocket Lab's 'Running Out of Fingers' flight in 2019, and we are thrilled to launch the first of our imaging constellation dedicated to imaging the Earth at night on board the Electron rocket. From day one, Alba Orbital's mission has always been to democratize access to space, and Rocket Lab has demonstrated that they are whole-heartedly committed to the same vision."The Alba cluster joins this mission alongside AuroraSat-1 from Aurora Propulsion Technologies, a Finnish company dedicated to the sustainable use of space. The mission is one of many scheduled to lift off on Electron from Launch Complex 1 this year, including three back-to-back dedicated launches for BlackSky Global, and the CAPSTONE mission to the Moon in support of NASA's Artemis program.
