The seam rupture of the helium supply pipeline to the fuel tanks of the Fregat upper stage, which is to put the first test satellites of the British OneWeb system into orbit, was detected during the pre-launch preparation at the Kourou space center (French Guiana), several sources in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.

MOSCOW, January 31 - RIA News. Troubleshooting the Fregat upper stage, which is intended to launch British OneWeb communication satellites with the Soyuz launch vehicle from the Kourou cosmodrome, will take a week, so the start is shifted from February 20 to February 27, a source in the space rocket told RIA Novosti.

Emmanuel Sauzay of Airbus says first OneWeb satellite launch in a “few weeks” as still waiting for some issues to be resolved with the Soyuz launching them. (That launch was scheduled for mid-February prior to issues announced last week with the Fregat upper stage.) #smallsat2019

May I post a proposal? Could we make this the Arianespace launch schedule, the firm Arianespace backlog.
Besides we could make a "ESA/ European long-term launch planning".
It has been bothering me for a while that this list is a combination of the two. Salo, I hope your not offended. I'm very thankful for all your work on this topic. It's just a suggestion to improve the Arianespace launch backlog.
Possibly another improvement is adding the mass of the GTO sat's, with this info we can earlier match to satellites that launch together.

The Arianespace Backlog stands at 53 launches:
12x Ariane 5 ECA:  10x DUO GTO {=20 GTO satellites} + JWTS & JUICE
4x Ariane 62:  FM1 (GTO/GTO+); 2x Duo Galileo MEO (FM2 &?); CSO3 (SSO FM-3)
2x Ariane 64: FM4 & Eutelsat 4x comsat.
10x Vega/Vega-C (block orders for 9x Vega & 4x Vega-C remaining)
  Vega: [PRISMA + SSMS-1 2019 + SEOSAT + SSMS-2 2020 + (THEOS-2 + NAOS)] (+ 2x Falcon Eye + Proba III)
  Vega-C: [CSG-2 +2x Airbus VHR2020 (duo) + KOMPSAT-7]
26x Soyuz, 10x from CSG and 16x from Russia (21x Oneweb; 10x Baikonour; 6x Vostochny) 5x Oneweb;
 + O3B + CSG-1, CHEOPS, ANGELS, EyeSat (3U) + CSO2 + MetOpSG A1 & B2 (& EUCLID)

The European institutions have ordered several satelites. But the launches for them haven't been procured jet. Could we move this longer-term launch planning into another schedule.

Eutelsat-7C and Intelsat-39 are built by SSL,
but the two different time windows are weird  ???

edit: now I got it, I forgot the time for the launch preparation
The first SSL satellite will launch with GSAT-30 in June, the second in July with EDRS-C

Arianespace to launch satellite deployment solution from Open Cosmos

Arianespace and Open Cosmos, a company providing turnkey space missions, announced today that they have signed a contract for the launch of an innovative CubeSat deployment solution.

Launched from the Guiana Space Center in French Guiana using a Soyuz rocket, the CubeSat deployment platform is a key to the commercial offering from Open Cosmos. The first mission comprises an array of CubeSats with a total capacity of 12 units (12U). It will weigh about 30 kg. at liftoff, and the CubeSats will be injected into Sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude over 500 km.

Open Cosmos delivers effective satellite-based solutions with the goal of enabling companies to use space technologies for tackling global challenge. It specializes in the development and implementation of missions for small, low-cost satellites (up to 50 kg.), with short lead times (typically less than a year). One of the primary advantages of Open Cosmos is that it gives customers access to a wide range of launchers and orbits.

The first Open Cosmos payload will be an auxiliary passenger on the COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation (CSG 1) satellite mission, along with the CHEOPS satellite for the European Space Agency ESA as well as the ANGELS and EyeSat’s French CNES space agency missions. Launch is scheduled for the last quarter of 2019.

Following the contract signature, Rafael Jordá Siquier, Chief Executive Officer of Open Cosmos, said, “Customers always ask us how they can get their payloads into orbit quickly and surely. Our partnership with Arianespace to launch a 12U (units) deployment platform will get them into their targeted orbit less than ten months after signing the contract. This mission will use one of the world’s most reliable and highest performance launchers, with a proven track record – and that’s exactly the kind of agility that the space industry needs right now.”

Stéphane Israël, Chief Executive Officer of Arianespace, added, “This contract clearly reflects Arianespace’s unwavering commitment to new players like Open Cosmos, which drive the dynamic small satellite market. It also reflects our ability to offer available, flexible and competitive solutions for all market segments, thanks to our family of launch vehicles.”
