The two spacecraft forming the European Space Agency’s Proba-3 mission are ready with instruments and sensors allowing them to maneuver to a millimeter-scale precision relative to one another. The spacecraft will fly into space on India's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in 2024.

Quote
The 340-kilogram spacecraft will be deployed by PSLV in a high Earth orbit with an orbital period of 19.7 hours. They will be placed in a highly elliptical orbit of 600 x 60530 km. After a short preparatory period, the two satellites will be separated and injected into a safe relative tandem orbit.

Narrative
USN LEOP and TT&C Support for PROBA-3.0 from Hawaii
PROBA-3.0 is a LEOP and TT&C mission of European Space Agency (ESA). PROBA-3.0 is set to launch on or around May 1st, 2024. Planned support from SSC is for a period of 180 days.
The two small satellites will be launched together in 2024 into a highly elliptical orbit (600 x 60530 km at around 59-degree inclination) in a stack configuration.
Proba-3 is devoted to the demonstration of technologies and techniques for highly precise satellite formation flying, to prepare for future multi-satellite missions flying as one virtual structure.
