Scheduled to launch in April 2021 on a Vega launcher, Pléiades Neo 3, the first of the new generation of very high-resolution satellites will join the existing Airbus fleet of optical and radar satellites, with increased resolution, revisit and coverage. It will be closely followed by its twin, Pléiades Neo 4, also scheduled for launch on a Vega rocket a few weeks later.

The two upcoming Vega launches are for Neo 3 and 4, not Neo 1 and 2 as thought earlier.

"The launch of the Soyuz rocket with 34 British OneWeb satellites from Kourou, scheduled for December 2021, has been postponed, tentatively, to February 2022," the source said.
Another source confirmed this information, adding that now in 2021 two launches of Soyuz with Kuru are to take place: in October with 34 OneWeb vehicles and in November with two European navigation satellites Galileo.

Pléiades Neo satellites are ready for launch at the European Space Center in Kourou.
The launch is now scheduled on 27 April on a Vega launcher!

Something about RadCube.

Meadbh’s project involves RadCube, the latest of ESA’s Technology CubeSats, which is due to fly on a Vega launcher this July.

But that was on March 18th.  It may have changed again.

2 things  :) :
1. What is "NESS"?
2.After the VV19 flight, there is no rideshare option in the SSO at the CSG for some time.
If the Vega schedule stays that way, as i believe.
VV 20: only 3xCERES 70 ° LEO
Vega C # 1 (VV21?) Lares 2 70 ° MEO
Vega C # 2 only CSG-2 SSO
Vega C # 3 only Pleiades NEO 5 + 6 SSO

After that it becomes unclear

https://www.sablaunchservices.com/next-launches/

But there remain many questions about the SAB schedule.
Avio Spa says in the last few presentations that they have only firmly booked 8 Vega+Vega-C launches. (plus Vega C maiden flight I think) there are more
LARES-2 and CERES have now switched the order.
CSG-2 should be LTAN 6:00 AM = LTDN 6:00 PM. correct? It says LTDN 5:30 PM.
Pleiades-NEO fits.
What Soyuz is that?
Where is the Kompsat 7 launch?

Launched:

Piggybacked:
Q4 - NESS - Vega/Vega C / Soyuz (TBD) - Kourou
December - MicroCarb - Vega/Vega C / Soyuz (TBD) - Kourou
TBD - Nano-JASMINE - Vega/Vega C - Kourou ZLV

...
Changes on March 24th
Changes on March 25th
Changes on March 26th
Changes on April 1st
Changes on April 7th

2 things  :) :
1. What is "NESS"?
2.After the VV19 flight, there is no rideshare option in the SSO at the CSG for some time.
If the Vega schedule stays that way, as i believe.
VV 20: only 3xCERES 70 ° LEO
Vega C # 1 (VV21?) Lares 2 70 ° MEO
Vega C # 2 only CSG-2 SSO
Vega C # 3 only Pleiades NEO 5 + 6 SSO

After that it becomes unclear

https://www.sablaunchservices.com/next-launches/

But there remain many questions about the SAB schedule.
Avio Spa says in the last few presentations that they have only firmly booked 8 Vega+Vega-C launches. (plus Vega C maiden flight I think) there are more
LARES-2 and CERES have now switched the order.
CSG-2 should be LTAN 6:00 AM = LTDN 6:00 PM. correct? It says LTDN 5:30 PM.
Pleiades-NEO fits.
What Soyuz is that?
Where is the Kompsat 7 launch?

FYI all that I can find: Originally two separate missions, NEOSSat (Near-Earth Object Surveillance Satellite) which builds on MOST (Microvariability and Oscillation of Stars) data performs two missions NESS (Near Earth Space Surveillance) for ESA via obvserver member state CSA (Canadian Space and HEOSS (High Earth Orbit Space Surveillance) for DND/DRDC (Department of National Defence/Defence Research and Development Canada). Follow-on satellites are proposed however there status is unknown.

Thank you very much.  :)

Because it says there:

Launch: The NEOSSat spacecraft was launched as a secondary payload on Feb. 25, 2013. The launch vehicle was PLSV-C20 of ISRO,
I was irritated.
We couldn't find another "NESS" satellite, Google and me.

"NESS" is an acronym (well, sort of) for "Nanosat 3U pour la Surveillance du Spectre civil". They also write it this way "NƐSS".

Thanks. Difficult to find up-to-date information about it.

I tried to combine the launches in the SABlaunchservice schedule with the payloads.
I may have found a candidate for Kompsat 7.

Aha found "NƐSS"

Quote
OTOS-NƐSS
To counter threats and challenges to our national security, our
military space assets must be equipped with sophisticated
tools. To maintain France’s independence in this domain,
CNES is conducting programmes of excellence founded on
strong innovation. One example is OTOS (1), which is seeking
to improve the systems our future military satellites will be
carrying. We will also be testing the new NƐSS (2) platform
in orbit in 2021. This highly promising cubesat will provide
global surveillance of civil radiofrequency spectrum in
L-band and S-band, and analyse sources of jamming.

(1) Observation de la Terre Optique Super-résolue
(2) Nanosat 3U pour la Surveillance du Spectre civil

...EarthCARE , ESA’s Clouds, Aerosols and Radiation Explorer mission developed in co-operation with JAXA, the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency, will address the need for a better understanding of the interactions between cloud, radiative and aerosol processes that play a role in climate regulation. That ESA-JAXA Joint mission was selected as the 6th Earth Explorer Mission and 3rd ESA Earth Observation Core Mission during the Granada ESA meeting in October 2004.

The satellite will weigh about 2350 kilograms (including propellant) and will be placed in a quasi-polar orbit of 97° inclination at an altitude of about 400 kilometres. Its launch is scheduled for March 2023.

VV18 launch cross-post:
Launch keeps slipping ... the clock now counts towards 28 April, 01:50 UTC (which is 27 April in Kourou time).
