Right now, eight of our Dove satellites are packed in their NanoRacks deployers on SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule. We’re calling these satellites “Flock 1f”.

On Sunday, June 28, at 10:21am (EDT), the Falcon 9 Launch Vehicle will launch, carrying the Dragon capsule and Flock 1f to the International Space Station (ISS). SpaceX calls this mission: CRS-7, the seventh of twelve SpaceX ISS resupply missions.

The unmanned Falcon 9 rocket will launch in an instantaneous window from Cape Canaveral, Florida. If this launch window is missed by just a few seconds, the Dragon capsule will not be able to “catch up” with the ISS once in orbit. If weather projections hold, we expect the Falcon 9 to launch successfully within this window.
