After that, a Falcon 9 will launch Telstar 18 VANTAGE from pad 40 on August 23 at 11:33pm EDT. The launch window stretches four hours to 3:33am EDT.
Then, a Delta 4 medium, the next to last medium version, will launch WGS-10 for the US Air Force on TBD, in the evening EST. And the final Delta 4 medium version rocket will launch the second GPS III series satellite on April TBD.
For comparison, Global IP, a startup with currently zero satellites, will be launching a 150 Gbps High Throughput Satellite (HTS) over Africa in 2019-2020. For a number of reasons, the 150 Gbps on GiSat-1 are not a direct apples-to-apples comparison to Intelsat/SES/Eutelsat’s 350 Gbps of FSS capacity
Falcon 9 will launch Telstar 18 VANTAGE from pad 40 on August 23 at 11:33pm EDT. The launch window stretches four hours to 3:33am EDT. The next Falcon launch after that is scheduled for November.
A company statement said only that the launch was scheduled for later this year, but Blake said Spaceflight expects the SSO-A mission to launch in the fourth quarter. “We don’t have an exact date yet, but we’re definitely in the fall,” he said. One source with a payload on the mission said they’ve been told to plan for a mid-November launch.
Taipei, Aug. 3 (CNA) The FormoSat-7 satellite group, a U.S.-Taiwan collaboration that could be launched by the end of this year, will greatly improve the world's typhoon prediction capabilities, the deputy head of the Central Weather Bureau said Friday.
While Lai said that Formosat-7 would be delivered to the US at the end of next month, agency officials appeared more reserved about its launch schedule, which has been postponed several times.The satellite cluster will most likely be launched next year, Lin said, adding that the actual date has yet to be determined.As Formosat-7’s launch is managed by the US Air Force and US company SpaceX, the NSPO can only wait for notification two months prior to launch, he said.

The next SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral will launch the Telstar 18 VANTAGE communication satellite from pad 40 on August 23 at 11:33pm EDT. The launch window stretches four hours to 3:33am EDT. The next Falcon launch after that is November TBD.
The Planetary Society's LightSail 2 spacecraft has proved it can withstand the rigors of launch aboard SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, the powerhouse rocket that will carry it into orbit. But that ride to space won't happen until at least November 30, as SpaceX works through a list of other payloads in line to fly first.
