SpaceX rocket launches 11 satellites on new Bandwagon-1 rideshare flight, including satellites from HawkEye360

The launch was the first for a new series of dedicated rideshare missions to complement SpaceX's existing Transporter missions. Unlike Transporter missions, which launch payloads into sun-synchronous orbits commonly used by remote sensing satellites, the Bandwagon missions are intended to send payloads to low earth orbits at inclinations of about 45 degrees. Bandwagon-1 carried 11 satellites, including six RF geolocation satellites called Clusters 8 and 9 for portfolio company HawkEye360. Hawkeye360 chose Bandwagon-1 because the mid-inclination orbit offered improved coverage over low and mid-latitudes compared to sun-synchronous orbits. These satellites will further support HawkEye360's work to help monitor and prevent illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing across the Indo-Pacific region. [Read more]
