Spire Satellite AIS - NORAD ID Numbers

What are the NORAD ID numbers of Spire satellites assigned to the production of AIS

If you are receiving data from Spire or statistics around satellite coverage on a Spire data service then you may find the Spire satellites referenced by the Spire Satellite ID, normally this is a prefix of FM followed by a number such as FM110 

Every satellite has a recognised identifier called the NORAD ID which is used to reference it and identify orbit information from the TLE file.

For those who need to map Spire Satellite IDs to NORAD IDs the table of mappings are below.

NOTE: This is only listing satellites that have been assigned to production of AIS data and are recorded as the source of satellite AIS in the Spire AIS archive database. 

 

Spire Satellite ID to NORAD ID Mappings for satellites which have produced AIS messages to date. 

Note other Spire satellites which have not been assigned to AIS data services are NOT listed
