Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat | Meteor-M №2-2 & rideshare payloads

Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center | RUS
Vostochny Cosmodrome, Siberia, Russian Federation
July 5, 2019, 5:41 a.m.
Status: Success
Mission: Earth Science

This is the fourth spacecraft in the Russian Meteor-M series of remote sensing satellites. Weighing about 2750 kg, it is intended to gather hydrometeorological data from sun-synchronous orbit. This includes monitoring ozone layer and radiation levels in the near-Earth space, as well as monitoring ocean surface temperatures and ice conditions.

Spaceport America, NM, USA
June 29, 2019, 6 p.m.
Status: Partial Failure
Mission: Suborbital

The 3rd launch of EXOS Aerospace's reusable launch vehicle. Failed during ascent due to what appears to be a gimbal issue. Sarge 1 glided steering its parachute and landed safely on the ground after dumping fuel.

Electron | Make It Rain

Rocket Lab Ltd | USA
Onenui Station, Mahia Peninsula, New Zealand
June 29, 2019, 4:30 a.m.
Status: Success
Mission: Dedicated Rideshare

Rideshare mission for Spaceflight. Electron will launch seven spacecraft, including a commercial Earth-observing microsatellite for BlackSky, two CubeSats for U.S. Special Operations Command, a pair of tiny prototype data relay nodes for Swarm Technologies, a student-built payload from Australia called ACRUX-1, and a satellite whose identity and owner remain a secret. The mission is named "Make it Rain" in a nod to the high volume of rainfall in Seattle, where Spaceflight is headquartered, as well in New Zealand where Launch Complex 1 is located.

Ariane 5 ECA | Eutelsat 7C & AT&T T-16

Arianespace | FRA
Kourou, French Guiana
June 20, 2019, 9:43 p.m.
Status: Success
Mission: Communications

Eutelsat 7C is based on an all-electric propulsion version of the SSL-1300 satellite platform. Equipped with 44 operational Ku-band transponders, the new satellite will be copositioned with Eutelsat 7B, releasing Eutelsat 7A to another orbital location. This improved two-satellite constellation will enable Eutelsat to optimise resources across both satellites, with enhanced coverage flexibility and connectivity set to take the 7° East neighbourhood to a new level. By almost doubling capacity over Sub-Saharan Africa, from 22 to 42 transponders, it will also make room for several hundred additional digital channels to support the region’s fast expanding TV market. Eutelsat 7C will also be equipped with a beam providing enhanced capacity for government services over Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia, and a beam that can be steered to cover any region visible from 7° East. AT&T T-16 is based on Astrium’s Eurostar-3000 platform. The satellite has a payload comprising of high power transponders in Ku-band and transponders in Ka-band. It will operate from 100.85° West.

Falcon 9 Block 5 | RADARSAT Constellation

SpaceX | USA
Vandenberg AFB, CA, USA
June 12, 2019, 2:17 p.m.
Status: Success
Mission: Earth Science

The Radarsat Constellation Mission is a follow-on project to RADARSAT-2 currently developed by MDA. The constellation will consist of a fleet of three spacecraft, and be both complementary and a follow-on to the upcoming deployment of the RADARSAT-2 mission. The primary purpose of the RCM is to provide C-Band data continuity for RADARSAT-2 users, as well as adding a new series of applications enabled through the constellation approach. The main uses of RCM are expected to be in the areas of: maritime surveillance (ship detection, ice monitoring, and oil spill detection), disaster management, ecosystem monitoring. The primary areas of interest are the landmass of Canada and its surrounding Arctic, Pacific and Atlantic maritime areas. The images and derived information are required to be provided to Canadian government users at frequent area coverage rates. Contrary to the earlier RadarSat missions, the imagery will not be available commercially. The spacecraft Payload will consist of a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensor integrated with an Automated Identification System (AIS). The SAR Payload concept is a 2-panel deployable SAR antenna of length approximately 7 meters.
