Bump
Any new news, particularly regarding the shipment of the first two satellites to Florida?

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
WorldView Legion satellites update
The first two WorldView Legion satellites have completed environmental testing and are essentially ready for the first launch
from a hardware perspective. However, in July 2022, we encountered delays during software validation and testing, which led
to further delays from our expected timetable. We are continuing with the software validation process, and now estimate the
first launch of the WorldView Legion satellites to be in the fourth quarter of 2022 assuming no major issues arise. The second
launch of the WorldView Legion satellites is now expected to be approximately two months after the first launch.

That is todays 10-Q. Good time to ask ;)

@Maxar 1st Legion sats delayed to Q4 on software issues; no Legion rev in 2022; co hopes to catch w/ more closely spaced @SpaceX Legion launches; @SemperCitiusSDA contract w/ @L3HarrisTech for 14 sat buses is 1st payoff for proliferated LEO investment.https://bit.ly/3BWpt7e [Aug 10]

I split/merged your post to the relevant launch thread.

Apparently, there is no new news, but sometimes a well-timed question shakes loose an answer.

You are a little early asking this time. Quarterly report expected 5pm ET today.  ;)

Last quarterly report said
"now estimate the first launch of the WorldView Legion satellites to be in the fourth quarter of 2022 assuming no major issues arise. The second launch of the WorldView Legion satellites is now expected to be approximately two months after the first launch."
Less official lines indicated late 2022 for first launch.
