RS-25 AOS/LOS per Object-A/-D



During passes this morning here in Iowa AOS and LOS of RS-25 CW telemetry on 
435.325 +/- Doppler correspond within a few seconds of tracking predictions 
based on TLEs for Objects-A/-D (too close to resolve).  Objects-A/-D are far 
enough ahead of all other objects that there is no possibility of a 
mismatch.

RCS data (Radar Cross Section) and matching by SpaceTrack shows 
MOZ.5/SAFIR/RUBIN-5/SL-8 to be Object-G (aka Object-J).  Perhaps there is an 
error in SpaceTrack information or perhaps RS-25 is not attached to the 
Kosmos-3M spent 3rd stage.
