France has updated its registration of satellites with the United Nations. In UN document ST/SG/SER.E/445, http://www.oosa.unvienna.org/Reports/Regdocs/ser445F.pdf, submitted to the UN on 2004 Mar 4, it gave a new list of satellites superseding previous information, which includes the registration of 22 previously unregistered satellites. Although I congratulate France on these corrections, regrettably there are many errors in the part of the document covering earlier years of the French space program: * FR-1 (1965-101A), previously registered by France in UN doc. A/AC.105/INF.127, is omitted. * The two satellites ESRO-1A (1968-84A) and ESRO-1B (1969-83A) are mangled into a single erroneous entry. The ESRO satellites were registered by France on behalf of ESRO in A/AC.105/INF.207 and INF.213. * 1971-30A is mistakenly called "D2A Polaire"; the correct name is just D2A, whereas "D2A Polaire" was a later launch than failed to orbit. * ESRO satellite ESRO 4 (1972-92A), registered by France for ESRO in A/AC.105/INF.264, is omitted. * Aureole 2 (1973-107A) and Aurole 3 (1981-94A), collaborative satellites generally considered to be Russian-owned with French instruments, were registered by the USSR in A/AC.105/INF.288 and ST/SG/SER.E/062; France is now laying claim to the satellites for the first time. I will give priority to the earlier USSR registrations in my records. * The D5A and D5B satellites 1975-39A/39B, registered by France in A/AC.105/INF.337, are omitted. * The SRET 2 satellite 1975-49B, and the Aura D2B satellite 1975-92A, registered by France in A/AC.105/INF.337, are omitted. * The ESA ISEE-2 satellite 1977-102B, which has never been registered, should have been registered by France on behalf of ESA at the time. It's not in the new French list, so ESA should register it. * The ESA OTS-2 satellite 1978-44A, registered by France in A/AC.105/INF.376, is omitted. * The information for 1984-81 is muddled: 1984-81A is ECS 2, not Telecom 1A; 1984-81B is Telecom 1A, not "element de lanceur non fonctionnel". ECS 2 was registered by ESA. * ECS 5 (1988-63B) was registered by ESA in ST/SG/SER.E/188; I will ignore France's new claim.
