Pictured here is Jupiter 2.  The skyjack back there gives a good sense of scale.

The Jupiter 3/EchoStar XXIV satellite continues to progress at Maxar and is expected to be launched during the first half of 2023

Is this now a delay or no delay from Q1/2023 to H1/2023 according to Hughes arithmetic?
Compared to the previous report.

The Jupiter 3 / EchoStar XXIV satellite is expected to be launched in the first quarter of 2023.

I would say quarterly financial statements are authoritative documents and therefore this is a delay.

SFN, After a three-year wait, SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy could launch again later this month, October 5
Quote
The other Falcon Heavy missions slated for launch in the next 12 months include the heavyweight Jupiter 3 commercial broadband satellite for EchoStar and Hughes Network Systems later in 2023. [Later than USSF-52, launching in Q2 2023, mentioned in the previous paragraph?]

SAT-MOD-20221017-00137

Quote
Based upon the foregoing, Hughes respectfully requests Commission grant of a one-year
milestone extension, until March 20, 2024, to launch and operate EchoStar XXIV, thus allowing
prompt deployment of new and additional services to U.S. consumers and abroad.

Hughes cites a few reasons that led to the delay. oh well ...
A launch period is not specified. However, they write:

Quote
Hughes has sought to reduce delay by procuring a launch vehicle that removes the need for electrical orbit raising, thus eliminating months of further delay.

Maxar to compensate Echostar for Jupiter 3 delays

Quote from: SpaceNews
Echostar said Nov. 22 that Maxar Technologies is providing compensation for production issues that have delayed the launch of its Jupiter 3 satellite to at least the first half of 2023.

The satellite operator said Maxar is “providing relief on future payments” under an amended contract, which also “expands EchoStar’s recourse” if there are more delays for a satellite originally slated to launch in 2021.
