YAM (with generic payload module) [Loft Orbital]
YAM (Yet Another Mission) is a series of micro satellites owned by Loft Orbital, which host various payloads for different customers.
The satellites consist of a standardized bus and Loft Orbital's payload hub, which houses the customer's payloads and provides power, data, mechanical, and thermal interfaces to the payloads and on-board data processing.
YAM 1 was to be a demonstration mission, which was shelved in order to start flying customer payloads sooner on YAM 2.
