Mandrake 1 is a technology demonstration mission conducted under DARPA's Blackjack program.
Mandrake 1 is a CubeSat that will carry supercomputer processing chips.
The launch was planned for early 2021 on the SpaceX multi satellite mission "Transporter 1". When the Mandrake 1 and Mandrake 2 satellits were to be mounted on the payload stack, the deployment mechanism was accidently activated, which led to damage to both payloads. Likely the satellites will fly on a later launch.
