    What does it mean?
    
    Steve,
    The NOSS launches have (usually) three subsatellites, flying in a
    triangular pattern.
    Two in the same orbit: the leader and the follower; the third sat
    has an orbit somewhat to the side and is known as the outlier.
    NOSS 4E is such an outlier.
