Atlas V ULTRASat Objects identified

Ultrasat LauncherAtlas V ULTRASat Objects identified

By using detailed Doppler shift measurements, PA0DLO informs that LightSail is object 90726, ULTRASat 7, without any doubt.

This means that LightSail is actually object 40658, 2015-025H in the JSpOC catalog.

The preliminary initial assignments in the JSpOC catalog for the objects in this launch will need to be corrected:

PSAT = 90720 = ULTRASat 1 = 40652 = 2015-025B
LightSail = 90726 = ULTRASat 7 = 40658 = 2015-025H
BRICSat = 90729 = ULTRASat 10 = 40661 = 2015-025L
