The MEV-2 satellite continues its orbital raising. Catalog number is S46113 (blue), but the TLEs for analyst object C85409 (red)  appear to refer to the same object

TAMPA, Fla. -- Northrop Grumman's MEV-2 satellite servicer is performing close proximity operations with Intelsat's in-orbit 10-02 spacecraft ahead of a docking attempt, SpaceNews has learned.

Both spacecraft remain healthy after being in close quarters to calibrate and test systems before MEV-2 backed off, according to a Northrop Grumman official.

А какая задача у пришельца? Заправка, инспекция?
Не все у нас еще хорошо, кое-что - просто замечательно!

Овладение телом и разумом :)
У Интелсата заканчивается топливо, а аппарат зачем-то архиполезен военным. Беспилотники в Сирии, и всё такое (наверное).
А груммановскому аппарату поручено механически захватить, несколько лет управлять и в итоге увести связник на орбиту захоронения.

ЦитатаSuccessful docking paves the way for future on-orbit and life-extension services through robotics
DULLES, Va. - April 12, 2021 - Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) and the company's wholly-owned subsidiary, SpaceLogistics LLC, have successfully completed the docking of the Mission Extension Vehicle-2 (MEV-2) to the Intelsat 10-02 (IS-10-02) commercial communications satellite to deliver life-extension services. The docking was completed at 1:34 p.m. EST.
 Скрытый текст:
Northrop Grumman is the only provider of flight-proven life extension services for satellites, and this is the second time the company has docked two commercial spacecraft in orbit. The company's MEV-1 made history when it successfully docked to the Intelsat 901 (IS-901) satellite in February 2020. Unlike MEV-1, which docked above the GEO orbit before moving IS-901 back into service, MEV-2 docked with IS-10-02 directly in its operational GEO orbital location.

"Today's successful docking of our second Mission Extension Vehicle further demonstrates the reliability, safety and utility of in-space logistics," said Tom Wilson, vice president, strategic space systems, Northrop Grumman and president, SpaceLogistics LLC. "The success of this mission paves the way for our second generation of servicing satellites and robotics, offering flexibility and resiliency for both commercial and government satellite operators, which can enable entirely new classes of missions."

Under the terms of Intelsat's satellite life-extension servicing contract, MEV-2 will provide five years of service to IS-10-02 before undocking and moving on to provide services for a new mission.
 Скрытый текст:
"Intelsat has pioneered innovations in space-based technology for more than five decades. We are proud to work side by side with Northrop Grumman on today's groundbreaking mission, the first-ever docking of a communications satellite in GEO orbit," said Intelsat Chief Services Officer Mike DeMarco. "Space servicing is a valuable tool for Intelsat in extending the high-quality service experience that our customers depend upon. Northrop Grumman's MEV technology has helped us extend the life of two otherwise healthy and high-performing satellites, while focusing our innovation capital on advancing the Intelsat next-generation network - this technology is a 'win-win' for us."
The Mission Extension Vehicle is the first in Northrop Grumman's lineup of satellite servicing vehicles, but following last year's robotic servicing mission award from DARPA, the company is working with the agency on a mission that will feature the first-ever commercial robotic servicing spacecraft. This mission will expand the market for satellite servicing of both commercial and government client satellites with advanced robotics using the company's Mission Robotic Vehicle (MRV) to conduct in-orbit repair, augmentation, assembly, detailed inspection and relocation of client satellites through robotics.
To further complement its on-orbit servicing portfolio, Northrop Grumman is leveraging model based systems engineering to develop its Mission Extension Pods (MEPs) which will also provide critical life extension services to aging satellites. The MRV will be used to install these pods on existing in-orbit commercial and government client satellites to extend their mission lives. The company is targeting 2024 for launch of both the MRV and the initial MEPs.
B-roll and animation footage for the mission can be found here. Photos for the mission can be found here.

ЦитатаMEV-2 состыковался со спутником Intelsat-10-02
12 апреля 2021 г. в 17:34 UTC (20:34 ДМВ) спутник MEV-2 [Mission Extension Vehicle-2] успешно состыковался с телекоммуникационным спутником Intelsat-10-02, находящимся на геостационарной орбите. Пристыковавшийся аппарат будет управлять ориентацией и положением спутником связи и, тем самым, продлит его срок службы, который был ограничен из-за исчерпания запасов топлива. Ожидается, что после стыковки и проверок MEV-2 будет пять лет отвечать за ориентацию и орбиту этого аппарата, а затем отстыкуется и направится на аналогичную миссию к новой цели.
