Rocket Lab Completes Another Successful Satellites Launch Mission for BlackSky

Rocket Lab Latest Satellite Launch Mission Details

The latest Rocket Lab satellites launch mission traditionally took off from the company launch complex in New Zealand. A lightweight Electron rocket delivered two BlackSky satellites to a 430km-high circular orbit. Right now, the number of satellites in the BlackSky constellation is 14. The mission, called ‘Without Mission A Beat,’ comes as part of the previous multi-launch agreement between the two companies.

Rocket Lab’s client, BlackSky, is a satellite maker that ensures monitoring of the strategic areas and delivers real-time alerts to decision-makers worldwide. The two recently added satellites launched by Rocket Lab have already become operational and brought in revenue in just six days after reaching their orbital destination.

Official Comment on the Satellite Launch Mission

Rocket Lab founder and CEO Peter Beck congratulated BlackSky for reaching space once again. Beck also added that his company has once again proven its dedication to ensuring quick and affordable access to space for BlackSky and other clients.

In response, BlackSky COO Nick Merski said that deploying two more satellites enhances the capacity of providing data to their own customers. BlackSky will continue to expand its contention to offer intelligence to both commercial and government organisations.

So far, Rocket Lab has not revealed any details about the next satellites launch mission for BlackSky but promised to announce them shortly.
