    Greg's UNID appears to match Monitor-E/SL-1 (03031A / 27840).
    
    As for the Essaim, since I last looked into their disposal, information has emerged that provides some useful orbital
    details:

    The reduction in altitude was much less than I had estimated, so my 15.1 rev/d search TLE should be discarded. I intend
    to produce new search TLEs, someday.
