We are well underway in preparations for our Dedicated Rideshare launch on a Falcon 9 (SSO-A). Right now, our first milestones have been met and everything is running according to schedule. Our engineers are completing dry runs on our integration activities, using our detailed mockups. We’ve done our first actuations of the system and have successfully operated the separation system with our avionics.
The ESPA ring has arrived, and we will have a full engineering model to conduct tests. Other large structures will arrive to a new build facility this summer. We’ll keep you posted as we move into final assembly!
