Breakup Notification – NOAA 16 (#26536)

Dear Sir/Ma’am,

On 25 November 2015 at approximately 0816z, the JSpOC detected multiple objects in the vicinity of NOAA 16 (#26536>, which may indicate a breakup of the non-operational satellite. As of 1830z, 19 associated objects have been cataloged as analyst satellites, and have been incorporated into the JSpOC’s routine conjunction assessment screenings.
More pieces may be cataloged as analysis continues, and messages will be sent to owner/operators if there is a potential conjunction that is a concern per our standard reporting process.

Very Respectfully,

JSpOC Orbital Protection and SSA Sharing Teams
