The LizzieSat satellite is now complete, no further changes will be made to the hardware from now until it is shipped to the launch site.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., December 20, 2023 – Sidus Space (NASDAQ: SIDU) (the “Company” or “Sidus”), a multi-faceted Space and Data-as-a-Service company, today announced that it has completed environmental testing of LizzieSat ahead of its upcoming launch on SpaceX’s Transporter-10 mission.
Environmental testing was completed by NTS Orlando where the LizzieSat Flight Unit underwent random vibration testing. The LizzieSat satellite for this mission is currently being prepared for shipment to the launch site and focus is now on mission operations in anticipation of launch.
The upcoming LizzieSat launch is a catalyst to the execution of Sidus Space’s high-margin revenue Data-as-a-Service offering. Customers for this launch include NASA, Mission Helios, Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) data customers, and multispectral imagery consumers for detection of methane gas and vegetative stress.
“We expect the launch of LizzieSat will provide us with the opportunity to continue to expand our high-margin revenue streams, driven by the sale of both data and payloads on future missions. We anticipate the enhanced capabilities of these satellites will provide space infrastructure, as well as critical data, to create a high margin, rapidly scalable business model,” said Carol Craig, Sidus’ CEO and Founder. “The Company is continuously working to secure agreements to provide additional annual recurring revenue while on orbit.”
