If it launches on schedule, and following an orbit raising and checkout period, WGS-2 should be operational by September.
WGS-2 is the second of six Boeing 702-based satellites built for the WGS constellation, which is replacing the Defense Satellite Communications System. Designed to last 10-15 years, WGS-2 will provide communications to troops in the Middle East and elsewhere. WGS-3 is expected to launch in July or August of this year.
