Re: Re: Keps for Athena launch



Bob,
They won't be able to differentiate PCSat, PICOSAT and Saphire for a couple of days (or at least 24 hours or so).  At that point, as usual, they will assign names to the object numbers based on their understanding of the order of separation.  Those relationships may be wrong.  At that point we need to start comparing AOS/LOS times with those three sets to pick out which set/object number is really which satellite.  Then we need to feed that back to NORAD so they will rearrange the object numbers.  The problem with that last process is the often get conflicting info from different sources - which we should avoid.
