Spaceflight, a rideshare service and mission management provider, has had an incredibly busy 2019 and though we’re nearing the end of the year, the company has no plans to slow down.
Spaceflight has had an exciting 12 months, closing 2018 with its historic SSO-A mission, launching a record-breaking 64 satellites to space. Since then, the company has executed five launches and is scheduled to launch about five more through the end of the year. While the individual launches haven’t sent as many satellites to orbit as SSO-A, the company is set to execute more launches this year than any other year. Also, though they may not all be record-breaking, Spaceflight has played an important role in several notable missions.
In anticipation of four upcoming launches between now and the end of 2019, we assisted Spaceflight in announcing the missions, their role and the customers onboard.
The first announcement published on Oct. 21 and highlighted the next three launches on ISRO’s PSLV (the launch vehicle). Given the launches don’t have an overwhelming number of satellites onboard and the proximity of the launch dates, we decided to combine the announcement of these launches into one release. Not only does it make it easy to locate information about all the launches, but it also illustrates the strength and consistency of Spaceflight’s partnership with ISRO and the reliability of the launch vehicle.
On Nov. 5 we announced Spaceflight’s third launch with Rocket Lab, scheduled for later this year. This is Spaceflight’s third launch with Rocket Lab in 2019 and it was important to demonstrate the continued partnership, as well as the unique payload onboard. Spaceflight is also working with a company that plans to create man-made shooting stars for both entertainment and research purposes.
Below are several pieces of coverage that resulted from the announcements.
Congratulations to Spaceflight on their continued success!
