Momentus and EnduroSat sign two launch agreements
by Debra Werner — June 16, 2020
SAN FRANCISCO – In-space transportation provider Momentus announced agreements June 16 with Bulgaria’s EnduroSat to provide transportation for two cubesats scheduled to launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rideshare flight in February 2021.
Under the agreement, Momentus will enclose Kuwait’s first spacecraft, QMR-KWT, and EnduroSat’s Shared Platform for Applied Research and Technology Affirmation (SPARTAN) in its Vigoride orbit transfer vehicle for the Falcon 9 launch. At the conclusion of the Falcon 9 flight, Vigoride will transport the cubesats to different orbits.
SPARTAN, a six-unit cubesat, is home to seven technology demonstrations and commercial payloads, according to a June 16 news release. EnduroSat intends the mission to serve as a pilot for its Shared Satellite Service.
For Shared Satellite Service missions, EnduroSat plans to handle integration, validation, testing, launch and operations of the satellite and payloads. EnduroSat customers will have access to payload data in the cloud through a digital ground station, according to the news release.
“The goal is to provide easy access to space for visionary entrepreneurs, scientists and technologists, helping them drive innovation at the final frontier,” EnduroSat CEO Raycho Raychev said in a statement. “EnduroSat is proud to cooperate on this pilot mission with the team of Momentus, and we look forward to the next missions.”
The agreements signal Momentus’ expansion in Eastern Europe as well as the Middle East through its partner EnduroSat, Momentus CEO Mikhail Kokorich said in a statement.
QMR-KWT is an educational mission funded by the Kuwaiti company Orbital Space and EnduroSat. Students around the world will write software to be uploaded to one of the satellite’s onboard computers, according to the news release.
Momentus purchased rides on five SpaceX Falcon 9 smallSat rideshare missions in 2020 and 2021 to showcase the ability of its Vigoride in-space transportation vehicle to move customer satellites 300 to 1,200 kilometers beyond the drop-off point.
Momentus To Provide In-Space Transportation Service to its Customers On SpaceX SmallSat Rideshare Launch
Service to deliver customer satellites to multiple custom orbits from a single Falcon 9 launch
We are excited to have Momentus as SpaceX’s first customer on a dedicated small satellite rideshare mission –Gwynne Shotwell, President and Chief Operating Officer at SpaceX.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (PRWEB) August 22, 2019
Momentus (http://www.momentus.space), provider of in-space shuttle services that move satellites between orbits, today announced plans to provide orbital shuttle service to its customers on SpaceX’s first dedicated SmallSat Rideshare mission. Momentus’ Vigoride orbital shuttle will carry multiple customer satellites, with a total mass up to 250 kg, each to its own custom orbit on a mission scheduled to launch no earlier than late 2020. As part of this launch, Momentus will offer its customers the ability to access multiple destination orbits through its in-space last-mile transportation services.
A graduate of the prestigious Y Combinator program and based in Santa Clara, California, Momentus recently announced a $25.5MM Series A, bringing total funding to $34M. Momentus employs new and proprietary technology including water plasma propulsion for the mission of low-cost sustainable transportation through space. Momentus’ Vigoride orbital shuttle, which is designed and built in-house, is powered by proprietary water plasma propulsion to ferry satellites from one orbit to another.
“We are showing that ridesharing from the Falcon 9 will be a game-changer. By ferrying payloads to multiple orbits from a single launch, we multiply the capability of an already very impressive system,” said Mikhail Kokorich, CEO of Momentus. “I’m personally thrilled to have the opportunity to work with SpaceX.”
“We are excited to have Momentus as SpaceX’s first customer on a dedicated small satellite rideshare mission,” said Gwynne Shotwell, President and Chief Operating Officer at SpaceX. “Their innovative technology will offer a strong complement to Falcon 9’s capability to reliably and affordably launch payloads for small satellite operators.”
They did have some recent hype, and great interview, CEO seems on point and well placed in his position.
