Sidus Space today announced its forward progression towards the launch of its LizzieSat™ (LS) satellite to the International Space Station (ISS). This mission is slated to take place later this year.
LS is a multi-mission satellite that supports custom payloads and customer needs leveraging space flight-proven communications, power, navigation and computing subsystems to provide domestic and international customers with valuable data from Low Earth Orbit.
LS is expected to be delivered to the ISS through NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract (wherein SpaceX and Northrop Grumman are contracted to launch to the orbiting laboratory) and deployed from a Japanese Experimentation Module (JEM) Airlock using the Space Station Integrated Kinetic Launcher for Orbital Payloads (SSIKLOPS) managed by Sidus Space.
“With our Preliminary Design Review complete, we are finalizing our customer payloads and tracking for a Q4 2022 CRS launch,” said Jamie Adams, Chief Technology Officer for Sidus Space. “We look forward to the continued momentum of the LizzieSat program to benefit our global customers and partners.”
