Next available slots for assignment


SP3c Code:
A letter and a 2-digit number assigned by the list-keeper in consultation with the IERS Services

L
For all s/c other than GPS, GLONASS, and GALILEO

G
For GPS s/c

R
For GLONASS s/c

E
For Galileo s/c

C
For BeiDou/Compass s/c

J
For QZSS s/c


ILRS Satellite ID†:
YYXXXAA where:

YY:
last two digits of launch-vehicle launch year

XXX:
launch vehicle number in year YY

AA:
payload sequence number for the specific launch XXX


NORAD #:
The ID number assigned to each item in orbit by NORAD


NOTES:

*
This list contains only GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO satellites currently (Feb. 2007) and historically tracked by ILRS. The SP3c codes of all GNSS satellites are identical to the codes used in the RINEX data and navigation message files. For more information on all of these s/c, please visit the IGS Antex file.
COSPAR ID to ILRS Satellite Identification Algorithm

COSPAR ID Format: (YYYY-XXXA)

YYYY
the four digit year of when the launch vehicle was put in orbit
XXX
the sequential launch vehicle number for that year
A
the alpha numeric sequence number within a launch


Example: LAGEOS-1 COSPAR ID is 1976-039A
Explanation: LAGEOS-1 launch vehicle wasplaced in orbit in 1976; was the 39th launch in that year; and LAGEOS-1 was the first object injected into orbit from this launch.

Requesting assignment of a code for new s/c:

New missions can obtain a code assigned to them by submitting a request via email to Carey Noll (carey.noll@nasa.gov) who is responsible for the maintenance of this list. The request will then be forwarded immediately to the Analysis coordinators of the three satellite services, IGS, ILRS, and IDS for approval. If there is no objection for a valid reason, the list-keeper assigns the code, posts the change on the web, notifies the requesting party and sends out an email to the three services' mailing lists announcing the new entry. The rules followed in assigning codes are very simple: "intelligent" satellites occupy the lowest entry numbers, cannonballs are above 50, and DORIS-only s/c in the 90s. GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO s/c are in all cases handled separately and solely the responsibility of IGS.
