ABL Space Systems (ABL) is preparing to launch the debut flight of the RS1 launch vehicle, with the next attempt to be made on no earlier than Dec. 7, 2022. The daily three-hour launch window opens at 1:00 PM AKST (22:00 UTC). Onboard are two CubeSats built by OmniTeq, previously L2 Aerospace. RS1 will attempt to place its payload into low Earth orbit nearly nine minutes after lift-off from Launch Pad 3C at the Pacific Spaceport Complex in Kodiak, Alaska.
The first attempt on Monday, Nov. 14, was scrubbed due to off-nominal data on the first stage during propellant loading. A second attempt on Thursday, Nov. 17, was aborted due to turbopump oxygen inlet conditions at engine ignition. The most recent attempt on Monday, Nov. 21, was aborted during engine ignition at T-1.75 seconds.
