Moriba -

Can you ask CSpOC/USSTRATCOM/etc to declassify the DMSP satellites? It is dumb that they are not released, didn't they make the TLEs categorized as For Official Use Only in the mid-1980s? (Yes I know that they will not listen to you!)

And I spot checked a few satellites - 10669 (FltSatCom-1) which have been on the SeeSat list, it now appears in the Satellite Catalog.

But 4510 (Ops 7329 or we call it Canyon 3) returns a TLE but the parameters are still not in the Satellite Catalog.
