CO3D on Vega C slips to 2023:

https://www.arianespace.com/press-release/arianespace-to-orbit-on-a-vega-c-launcher-the-co3d-constellation-jointly-developed-by-cnes-and-airbus/

4x 300kg satellites from Airbus, could those be Arrow (oneweb) busses?
They go to 500km SSO.  ??? NAOS
Arianespace NAOS
Quote
Arianespace to launch the National Advanced Optical System (NAOS) under the term of a turnkey contract between OHB Italia and the Luxembourg’s Directorate of Defence.

Using a Vega C or Vega rocket, the earth-observation mission will be conducted from the Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana, in 2022.

Built by OHB Italia, NAOS will weigh approximately 600 kg. at launch and is designed to have a nominal service life of at least 7 years once positioned in a sun-synchronous orbit at around 500 km.

This could involve a nice project for RUAG

MOSCOW, Dec 8 - RIA Novosti. The only space launch in 2020 from the Vostochny cosmodrome of the Soyuz-2 carrier rocket with 36 British OneWeb satellites has been postponed from December 17 to 18 for reasons not related to technology, two sources in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.
"The launch has been postponed to the 18th," the agency's source said.
This information was confirmed by another source.

Looking ahead to the Kourou Soyuz launches in 2021.

Is it plausible that a OneWeb launch could be the first Kourou Soyuz launch this year (before CSG-2)?

Also, Gunter's Page has the Kourou Soyuz OneWeb launches as Soyuz-ST-B/Fregat-M, not MT.

Planned launches:
Date - Satellite(s) - Rocket - Launch Site - Time (UTC)

2021
May - CSG-2 - Soyuz-ST-A /Fregat-M - Kourou ELS
Early Summer - Galileo-FOC FM23, Galileo-FOC FM24 - Soyuz ST-B/Fregat-MT - Kourou ELS
TBD - OneWeb (x34) - Soyuz-ST-B/Fregat-MT? (VS26?) - Kourou ELS
TBD - OneWeb (x34) - Soyuz-ST-B/Fregat-MT? (VS27?) - Kourou ELS

Changes on December 7th

Seeking correction or clarification:
The launch campaign for VS24/Falcon Eye 2 was underway towards a March 6 UTC launch, and the LV was on the pad.
The Fregat-M upper stage discovered to need repair.
The Fregat-M for VS25/CSO 2 was swapped in for VS24.
The defective Fregat-M was eventually returned to Russia by sea for repair, after a further problem of oxidizer leak was detected in May.

(A first stage side block meant for VS24 had to be swapped out, too.)

In turn, the Fregat-M swapped from VS25/CSO 2 to VS24 was found to need repair.  Was this repair done on-site at Kourou?

The Fregat-M originally intended for the (pre-pandemic, pre-OneWeb bankruptcy, end-of-2020 Kourou) OneWeb launch was swapped in for use on VS25.

AFAIK the planning for launching the Galileo satellites (FM23+) initially was that they would use Ariane 6. But Ariane 6 is over two years late! Thus it had to transition back to Soyuz (or the phased out Ariane 5 ES).
Oneweb initially ordered 21 Soyuz launches, three had taken place before the Chapter 11 bankruptcy. After the Chapter 11 the backlog for Oneweb was reduced from 18 to 16. (So 19 instead of 21 launches total.)
The Soyuz launches from Kourou are significantly more expansive than the launches from Baikonur or Vostochny. (Russian's have to be flown in from Russia to Kourou to execute the launch. Besides there are politics involved.)
If think two Soyuz rockets initially build for Oneweb to launch from Kourou, will be used to launch Gallileo satellites.
So I don't expect Oneweb launches from Kourou during 2021.

CSO 2/VS25 NOTAMs; launch circa 15:45 UTC; Fregat upper stage re-entry on second orbit:

Eutelsat entrusts Arianespace with the launch of its next-generation EUTELSAT 10B satellite

December 15, 2020

Arianespace and Eutelsat have confirmed that EUTELSAT 10B, Eutelsat’s next generation high-throughput telecommunications satellite, will be launched on an Ariane 5 rocket.

EUTELSAT 10B is scheduled for launch in 2022 on one of eight Ariane 5 missions remaining to be performed with the heavy-lift launcher.

Arianespace, the European launch services provider, has confirmed that it will launch a new satellite – EUTELSAT 10B – for Eutelsat, one of the world’s leading satellite operators.

The launch is scheduled from the Guiana Space Centre on an Ariane 5 in 2022.

EUTELSAT 10B is a telecommunications satellite to be positioned at the 10° East orbital position, offering unique visibility spanning from the Americas to Asia. Built by Thales Alenia Space and based on its Spacebus NEO all-electric platform, it will embark Ku- and C-band payloads to ensure service continuity for existing customers on EUTELSAT 10A, while supporting the development of the Eutelsat Group’s activities in mobile connectivity thanks to two incremental multi-beam HTS Ku-band payloads.

Pascal Homsy, Eutelsat’s Chief Technical Officer, said: “We are pleased to entrust the launch of EUTELSAT 10B to our long-standing partner, Arianespace, further cementing the relationship between our two companies and reflecting our confidence in Ariane 5 providing us with access to space.”

“We are honored by Eutelsat’s renewed trust in Arianespace’s launch services solutions,” said Stéphane Israël, CEO of Arianespace. “Not only does this contract illustrate the long-lasting partnership between our two companies and the robustness of our relationship, it also demonstrates the competitiveness of Ariane 5 within the demanding market of geostationary telecommunications satellites. With this latest announcement, Ariane 5 has secured almost all its final series of launches, in advance of the handover to Ariane 6 with the same success.”

RESULTS OF THE VV17 FAILURE INVESTIGATION BY THE INDEPENDENT INQUIRY COMMISSION. VV18 VEGA RETURN-TO-FLIGHT EXPECTED BY THE END OF Q1 2021

Colleferro, 18 December 2020 - Avio S.p.A. announces that the Independent Inquiry Commission composed of ESA and Arianespace and supported by Avio has completed its works. The Commission has confirmed the initial hypothesis of a problem related to the integration of the fourth-stage AVUM Thrust Vector Control (TVC) system as the cause of the loss of control of the launcher. The Commission has also provided a comprehensive set of recommendations to ensure safe and prompt return to flight by end of Q1 2021, as well as to ensure launch vehicles reliability on the long term.

The SatKomHan project seems to be dead. The slot at 123° East is gone too.
The article is already from February.  ???

Some Ariane 5 launches will slip to 2020, and first Ariane 6 will not launch with Galileo.

Quote
The company currently expects to perform three Ariane 5 launches in the year, two with commercial satellites and the third carrying NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. Israël said the launch of JWST remained on schedule for the end of October. ... A fourth Ariane 5 launch is possible if other commercial satellites are ready in time.

There are eight Ariane 5 launches left before the vehicle is retired, which Israël said is likely to be by the end of 2022 but could slip to 2023 depending on when customers deliver their payloads.

Israël noted that first Ariane 6 launch is primarily a qualification mission for ESA, limiting the potential payloads that can use it. For example, he said it’s unlikely it could be used for a geostationary communications satellite. He said Arianespace is in discussions with a potential customer for that launch, but “it’s too early to say whether it will materialize.”
