YAM 2 [Loft Orbital]
YAM (Yet Another Mission) is a series of micro satellites owned by Loft Orbital, which host various payloads for different customers.
The satellite consists of a standardized bus provided by Blue Canyon Technologies 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 2 was to be launched in early 2020 on an Indian PSLV rocket, but was moved to a Falcon-9 v1.2 (Block 5). It hosts five payloads:
Beginning with 2021, quarterly missions are planned.
