Astris will simplify missions by taking over some of the required built-in propulsion capabilities of payloads to move themselves to their final position in orbit. Future space missions, especially for telecommunications applications and space exploration, could use Astris to reduce mission cost and risk. ESA’s Hera spacecraft, a planetary defence mission to the Didymos asteroid system, is set to be the first to benefit.In three types of missions, Astris could enable deep space exploration for ridesharing payloads with destinations such as asteroids, the Moon and Mars; insert a payload directly into geostationary orbit; or augment Ariane 6’s ability to deploy multiple payloads such as a constellation into separate low Earth orbits on a single launch.

VV-16 was a SSMS Dedicated Rideshare.VV-18 and VV-19 launch Pleiades NEO + SSMS HEX1 Piggyback.I think the launch in the list is another dedicated rideshare.The SSMS/SAB launch schedule can be found here.
