Orb-D1 COTS Demonstration Mission

An Antares rocket carrying Orbital Sciences' Cygnus cargo spacecraft is set to launch from Pad-0A at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at Wallops Island, Virginia on Sept. 17, 2013.

The goal of the mission is to demonstrate the complete Orbital commercial delivery system from the launch of the Cygnus advanced cargo logistics spacecraft aboard Antares and the rendezvous of Cygnus with the International Space Station (ISS), through unloading of cargo from Cygnus and loading of disposal cargo, to Cygnus departure from the ISS and reentry over the Pacific Ocean.

The Orb-D1 mission is the final development milestone under the NASA Commercial Orbital Transportation System agreement. With the successful completion of the COTS mission, Orbital is slated to deliver up to 20,000 kilograms of supplies over eight missions to the ISS under the Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract with NASA through 2016.

Since this is in the Patches/Pins room, is the patch available?

I've purchased the Antares patch from Orbital's company store, which is awesome. Unfortunately, they don't have the A-ONE patches and have no plans on making additional ones. Interestingly I've been speaking to Emily at the company store and they issue patches to people who attend the launch at Guest Services on Wallops Island.

I've been told by Emily at the Orbital company store that they will have the Orb-D1 mission patch available by the end of this week for $2.50 each.

The store has both A-ONE (Item Number: LL027) and ORB-D1 (Item Number: LL026) for $2.50. I'm thinking (and hoping) that there's going to be a Cygnus patch since there's a decal.

An update to Orbital's patches, it appears that they no longer have the A-ONE patch, but they have the D1-ORB and Antares patches available. I had to check the store to see if they have the Cygnus patch or pin available since CAPT Culbertson had worn the Cygnus lapel pin at yesterday's Naval History Conference.

I have just had all three patches delivered to UK so it is possible. They look really good and great value. Many thanks to Emily.

On a separate note, on eBay, the Antares program patch is being sold for $14.95. This same patch is still available for $2.50 on Orbital's company store.
