SAOCOM 1B is the second of the two satellite SAOCOM 1 satellites and will launch into a sun-synchronous polar orbit from SLC-40, Cape Canaveral AFS. Previously, SAOCOM 1A launched from Vandenberg AFB in 2018 aboard Falcon 9 and was the first RTLS mission on the west coast. SAOCOM 1 are synthetic aperture radar Earth observation satellites intended to support disaster management such as flooding, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, landslides, forest fires, and to conduct monitoring services for agriculture, mining and ocean applications, including monitoring surveys of Antarctica. The SAOCOM spacecraft are operated by CONAE, the Argentinian National Space Activities Commission, and are built in Argentina by INVAP. The SAOCOM 1 and 2 constellations will operate in concert with the four satellite Italian COSMO-SkyMed constellation to provide twice daily coverage.

This mission includes rideshare payload GNOMES-1. It will be the first polar launch from the Florida Space Coast in 60 years. The launch azimuth will be southward skirting the Florida coastline. The booster will land at LZ-1 and stage 2 will continue south over the Caribbean Sea and Cuba. The launch time is expected to be near sunset.
