The satellite platform lifted off from Cape Canaveral aboard the SpaceX’s Transporter-2 mission carrying to space six satellites and 12 payloads from fourteen different nationalities.

ION SCV 003 will deploy six satellites into distinct orbits and perform the in-orbit demonstration of 12 hosted payloads1. The mission serves clients from 14 different nationalities and brings the total number of payloads launched by D-Orbit up to 63.

‘This is our third mission in less than nine months, and our incoming fourth mission is already fully booked,’ said Luca Rossettini, D-Orbit’s CEO. ‘The pace at which we’re moving is a true testament to the economic benefits delivered to satellite operators and space companies leveraging space logistics’ services. I’m proud of what we have accomplished so far, thanks to the extraordinary skills and dedication of our team, and excited to witness our contribution to the new space sector as our company grows, and our technology keeps pushing the envelope of what is possible.’
