MEV2 is scheduled to be launched later this year. Its target satellite hasnt been officially released yet but Ive found a reference that it may well be Intelsat 10-02 at 1W which is coming up to the end of its station keeping fuel

An interesting development for MEV2

As well as acting as an orbital tugboat it will also be equipped to host payloads of its own.

MEV 2 will also be equipped to carry hosted payloads from commercial companies and small satellites that could be deployed for science missions.
