Orbit parameter update

Now a week after launch we are happy to report that all satellites that have been heard are in good health! We are waiting for an update on two satellites still.

Unfortunately, the tracking of satellites has been more effort than expected. The fact that two passengers on our manifest are still struggling is mainly due to these difficulties. The preliminary and post-launch TLEs have done their duty – so it seems – but their accuracy now is no longer reliable.

NORAD/JSpOC have been doing good work with cataloging the objects coming from this launch. Of course, this launch being a world record in terms of orbited objects, the number and size of the objects provide challenges in the cataloging effort.

For seven out of the nine ISIPODs TLEs now have been issued by NORAD, where the naming is now also consistent with the satellites. However, for the passengers of ISIPOD-2 and ISIPOD-3 no TLE is available yet. We are still working out this issue as a service to our customers.

As a summary, the following TLEs are now confirmed, and we also declare them to be in conformance with the initial deployment state and the ICD of this launch. We remain to be interested in finding out how these TLEs work for tracking your satellites.
