When will the ViaSat-3 satellites launch?

For the first ViaSat-3 satellite over The Americas, service launch to support commercial services is anticipated in the first quarter of 2023 (Viasatís Q4 for fiscal year 2023). The second ViaSat-3 payload (EMEA) shipped to Boeing July 8, 2022. Its service launch is anticipated for 2023. The launch date of the third satellite over APAC is TBD.

According to a Twitter post from last March, launch of the ViaSat-3 is scheduled for March 2023:

The ViaSat-3 will be the last commercial geostationary satellite launched by an Atlas V following today's launch of SES-20 & SES-21, and after it is launched, the Kuiper Systems satellites will be the only remaining commercial satellites to be launched from the Atlas V.

Not true. We don't know what USSF 51 is.

I wanted to clarify that the ViaSat-3 is the last remaining commercial geostationary satellite scheduled for launch aboard an Atlas V, but you're right, most orbital parameters for USSF-51 remain classified for the moment.
