RE: Sat Names for LoTW



The most logical and universally-known satellite names are the names that
appear in the published Keplerian elements.  Most tracking programs use that
name as default.  It's a naming standard that already exists, and every
satellite operator has a file that contains all the names.

The only gray area would be what name to use for the Space Shuttles.  The
Keplerian element satellite names are always STS-xx, or STS-xxx.  So you
might want to stick with the specific flight names just to be consistent.

Here are the names from the Keplerian elements:
AO-07
AO-10
UO-11
RS-10/11
FO-20
RS-12/13
RS-15
FO-29
SO-33
AO-40
UO-14
AO-16
WO-18
LO-19
UO-22
KO-23
AO-27
IO-26
KO-25
TO-31
GO-32
UO-36
AO-37
SO-41
MO-46
SO-42
NO-44
AO-49
SO-50
ISS
NO-45
