TBD - Mohammed VI-B (MN35-B, Morocco EO Sat 2) - Vega / Soyuz-ST-A/Fregat-M - Kourou

Why is Mohammed VI-B listed with Vega and Soyuz? Since the first launches with Vega should it not follow the 2nd will too? Especially considering the price difference between both launchers...

There’s always a possibility that Mohammed-VI B could switch launchers. Right now, it’s baselined for Vega with the option of switching it to the Soyuz-STA Fregat-M.

I understand, but I am curious what the reasons for this could be. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

On top of my head I can think of:

A) All available Vegas sold out for the desired time frame.

B) Additional secondary payloads which require the extra performance offered by Soyuz.

Anything else?

A potential launch failure from Vega

Well, let's hope not.

I made quick list of the Arianespace orderbook for 2017. Sorted by date of announcement.
Data arianespace.com, list my own work, thus any faults mine.

So far in 2017

8 new GTO contracts for Ariane 5, plus:
2 Ariane 62 +1 option
1 Vega
3 Vega C
5 Soyuz

Edit: Corrections.

Ariane 241 – La 1ère campagne de l’année est lancée !

Le navire qui assure le transport, entre l’Europe et la Guyane, des éléments du lanceur, est arrivé au port de Pariacabo de Kourou. Les éléments sont déchargés et convoyés au Centre spatial guyanais, jusqu’au BIL (bâtiment d’intégration lanceur). La mission d’Ariane 5 prévue fin janvier 18, sera le premier lancement de l’année.

VA241 is scheduled for January 18th.

In particular, the 'Geostationary Orbital Composite Satellite (Cheollian) No. 2 (2A and 2B)', which is being developed through Korean companies’ proprietary technologies will have a crucial year for its success this year. They will completes the final assembly of the Chollian 2A, which will serves as a meteorological satellite, until the second half of this year and its final performances will be put to test viaa  satellite environmental test. Then, after a space weather sensor is put together with the satellite body in May of next year, the satellite will be launched into a geostationary orbit of 36,000km above the earth in the second half of 2018. In addition, the Cheonan-2B, a marine observation satellite, is scheduled to be launched in 2019 after body assembly and functional tests and the introduction of a payload this year.

Lockheed:

DEnver, Nov. 30, 2017 – Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has completed the major assembly of Hellas-Sat-4/SaudiGeoSat-1 and has shipped the communications satellite to its Sunnyvale, California facility to undergo critical environmental testing.

 

The first of the modernized LM 2100 satellites, Hellas-Sat-4/SaudiGeoSat-1 is being built for Arabsat/Hellas Sat and King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology. It will provide advanced telecommunications capabilities, including television, internet, telephone and secure military communications to customers in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

 

Hellas-Sat4/SaudiGeoSat-1 is the first of two LM 2100 satellites in the Arabsat-6G program. The second is Arabsat-6A.

 

During environmental testing, the satellite will undergo a series of tests to simulate the launch and space conditions to ensure a successful mission. This testing includes simulating the launch environments with acoustic and vibration testing, simulating the harsh space environment with vacuum and extreme temperature testing, and radio frequency compatibility and performance testing to validate the payload meets critical performance expectations.

 

“Environmental testing is an essential set of activities to ensure the satellite can operate as designed in the extreme conditions of space and will meet our customers’ needs,” said Joe Rickers, Lockheed Martin’s Arabsat-6G program manager. “Now that assembly of the Hellas-Sat-4/SaudiGeoSat-1 satellite is complete and environmental testing is on the horizon, we’re one step closer to providing greatly improved communications capabilities for our customers.”

 

The satellite recently went through comprehensive testing as a part of a baseline integrated systems test at the company’s Littleton, Colorado facility where the satellite was designed, assembled and integrated with its payload. Remaining baseline testing will be completed before environmental testing. The rigorous baseline test ensures the fully integrated satellite is working properly before moving on to environmental testing.

 

While in California, but prior to the environmental tests, the satellite’s large communications antennae and large flexible solar arrays will be installed. The four deployable antennas use a new design that allows them to be tuned with higher accuracy and efficiency. The multi-mission modular solar arrays incorporate three key features: higher power, less mass and compact stowage. This compact flexible array design delivers 50 percent more power than previous rigid array designs at 30 percent less mass.

 

The satellite is scheduled for delivery to the launch site in third quarter 2018.

Thank you for updating the launch list so meticulously.

How many starts would you guess will there be in 2018? If it was only about payloads without other bottlenecks there is enough to launch 14 times, at least...

Spaceflight Now updated their schedule:

SES-14/GOLD and Al Yah 3 are scheduled to launch on January 25, 2018 with a window lasting between 22:20 UTC and 23:05 UTC (7:20 PM GFT to 8:05 PM GFT).

On the next Ariane 5 mission in March 2018, Azerspace 2/Intelsat 38 has been replaced by Superbird 8/DSN-1 and the latter will fly with HYLAS 4 as the upper passenger, making HYLAS 4 the lower passenger. Also, new launch date is March 16, 2018; no window yet.

Intelsat signs contract with Arianespace for two launches

Arianespace signed an agreement to launch two satellites for longtime customer Intelsat, one of the world’s largest satellite operators. This continues the longstanding relationship between Intelsat and Arianespace that dates back to 1983.

The first launch will carry the Galaxy 30 satellite together with the Orbital ATK Mission Extension Vehicle-2 (MEV- 2) as a stacked pair. Galaxy 30 will be the first replacement satellite for the North American Galaxy Fleet and in addition to its C-band payload, Galaxy 30 will include Ku- and Ka-band payloads to support broadband applications in North America. The launch of Galaxy 30 demonstrates Intelsat’s commitment to its distribution neighborhoods, which has an unmatched penetration of cable headends in the United States. Galaxy 30 is based on Orbital ATK’s GEOStar-2™ satellite platform.

The MEV-2 satellite is owned by Orbital ATK’s Space Logistics LLC subsidiary. Intelsat will be the first customer of the MEV-2. The MEV-2 provides life-extending services by taking over the orbit maintenance and attitude control functions of a client’s spacecraft.

Under the contract, Arianespace will also launch an additional satellite for Intelsat in the second half of 2020.

Arianespace will launch the first pair of satellites, Intelsat’s Galaxy 30 satellite and the MEV-2, in early 2020 from Europe’s Spaceport in South America aboard an Ariane 5 launch vehicle.
