Falcon 9 v1.2
Location Cape Canaveral AFS SLC-40
Time TBD

SpaceX's Falcon 9 is contracted to launch the Telstar 19 Vantage (Telstar 19V) communications satellite into a geostationary transfer orbit. There, the SSL-built satellite will use onboard propulsion to move itself into a geostationary orbit located at 63 degrees West to provide broadband services to South America, Northern Canada, the Caribbean and the North Atlantic Ocean via Ku-band and Ka-band high-throughput transponders.

NETJul Iridium NEXT Flight 7

Falcon 9 v1.2
Location Vandenberg AFB SLC-4
Time TBD

This will be the seventh of eight planned SpaceX Falcon 9 launches for Iridium Communications, which is replacing its entire constellation of legacy spacecraft with the Iridium NEXT satellites. This flight will orbit the 56th-65th next-generation satellites.

NETAug Telkom-4

Falcon 9 v1.2
Location Cape Canaveral AFS SLC-40
Time TBD

The Indonesian Telkom-4 geostationary communications satellite is expected to be launched by SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket.
