Looks like DART is still going ahead (preliminary design phase now): https://www.nasa.gov/feature/nasa-s-first-a...xt-design-phase

I've seen no news on AIM though; no getting our hopes up?

"La sonde AIM ne pourra pas être lancée en 2020 comme prévu, a reconnu l'ESA qui réfléchit à envoyer une caméra qui volerait sur DART et se détacherait peu avant l'impact." It seems AIM is more or less dead, no launch in 2020. Instead, ESA is considering launching a detachable camera on DART.
