at the Final Assembly Building has enabled August 14 to be envisioned as the launch date for Ariane Flight 253 (VA253), with the possibility of an optimization in the process for the mission to be performed one day earlier.

Between 5:33 p.m. and 6:20 p.m. Washington, D.C. time,
Between 6:33 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. Kourou, French Guiana time,
Between 21:33 and 22:20 Universal time (UTC),
Between 11:33 p.m. and 12:20 a.m. Paris time, in the night of August 14 to 15,

Flight VA253: Ariane 5 – Galaxy 30/MEV-2/BSAT-4b – Launch targeted for August 15 due to weather conditions



August 13, 2020

The Ariane 5 with its three satellite payloads for Flight VA253 was transferred today to the Guiana Space Center’s ELA-3 launch zone. However, due to currently unfavorable wind conditions at altitude above the Guiana Space Center, Arianespace has decided not to initiate the final phase of launch preparation operations.

The soonest possible launch date for Flight VA253 is Saturday, August 15, as early as possible during the following launch window:
  • Between 5:33 p.m. and 6:20 p.m. Washington, D.C. time,
  • Between 6:33 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. Kourou, French Guiana time,
  • Between 21:33 and 22:20 Universal time (UTC),
  • Between 11:33 p.m. and 12:20 a.m. Paris time, in the night of August 15 to 16,
  • Between 06:33 a.m. and 07:20 a.m. Japan time, in the morning of August 16.

Have not seen footprints for both MEV-1 and MEV-2.
They are not of interest, the only communication is TT&C (narrow band).
MEV-2 is capable of TT&C (space to earth) in the 3.7...4.2 and 11.45...12.25 GHz bands.
You can study these documents for details.

SpaceTrak also just came with the names, and it matches your observations!

What they have not figured out yet is 2020-053A and B, Express 80 and 103, guess TT&C freq. are unknown...

By observing very carefully, the apogee, perigee and inclination parameters. object 2020-053A looks like Express 103 and 2020-053B of Express 80.

I apologize for the off topic..

BSat-4b arrived at 105.1°E testing location a few days ago.
And Galaxy 30 just arrived at 84.55°E testing location.

The docking of MEV-2 to Intelsat 10-02 is planned for February or March 2021.
