Transporter 5 Mission



CAPE CANAVERAL FL—MAY 25, 2022—OmniTeq Space System Division (formerly SEOPS LLC), successfully launched Octobucket on its inaugural flight onboard the SpaceX Transporter 5 mission. Earlier this month, the OmniTeq team integrated Octobucket with our partners Quad-M.

OmniTeq would like to dedicate this mission to the life and legacy of a friend and colleague, Victor Dube, the founder of Quad-M. OmniTeq’s Chief Science Officer, Mike Johnson, has had the joy of working with Victor for many years, “Victor was a pioneer and trailblazer in the satellite deployer universe. He started building missile decoy deployers in the 1970’s that eventually aided in winning the Cold War while simultaneously designing and implementing the US DoD aircraft flare and chaff systems that are still used today. His collaboration with NanoRacks and eventually with OmniTeq have revolutionized the CubeSat launch industry and his legacy continues to live on.” The OmniTeq team celebrates Victor Dube extraordinary life and the legacy he has left behind.
