Sidus Space receives signals from LizzieSat™ after successful launch


Sidus Space announced it received multiple signals from its LizzieSat™ satellite after launch and deployment to low Earth orbit as part of SpaceX’s Transporter-10 Rideshare mission on March 4, 2024 from Space Launch Complex 4 East at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.

The Sidus mission and launch team received multiple signals on its FCC approved prime radio frequency and continues to monitor communications with the satellite from its operations center in Merritt Island, Florida. The LizzieSat™ satellite, approximately the size of a mini-refrigerator, is considered a microsatellite with a weight of 275 pounds and is able to support multiple missions and customers from its single platform.


"After a successful launch and deployment, we are very excited to report that during the launch and early operations (LEOP) stage, we received signals from LizzieSat™," said Carol Craig, CEO at Sidus Space. "This milestone marks the beginning of Sidus’ new era as a satellite manufacturer and operator and demonstrates our ability to deliver cutting-edge space hardware while pushing the frontiers of space technology and data collection. We have methodically executed on our strategy of building a leading Space and Defense as a Service company with an experienced team, innovative and advanced technologies, a vertically integrated manufacturing facility, and a robust spacecraft supply chain. It’s exciting to show proof of this capability for government and commercial customers alike.”


Two more LizzieSat™ satellites are expected to launch from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station later this year and will provide tailored intelligence solutions for industries such as defense, agriculture, maritime, and oil and gas.
