My longstanding guess was an SDS to Molniya; however, I have been informed that NOTAMs coordinates have been issued for
the Centaur, similar to those of NROL-38, which inserted an SDS into GTO; therefore, this most likely is the third SDS
headed for GEO in three years. The first of the recent series was NROL-27 in March 2011, followed by NROL-38 in June
