Name Status Launch Orbit
NOOR 1-A (NOOR1-A, Unicorn-2B) No signal? (Alba has not announced receiving signals and this is still in higher altitude orbit compared to NOOR 1B reentry indicating solar panels were likely not deployed as of 2020-04-18) 2019-12-06 375 km, 97 deg
NOOR 1-B (NOOR1-B, Unicorn-2C) Reentry 2020-04-07. Was semi-operational until? (Panels were deployed, but wording "customer confirmed reception of signal" and focus on TLEs instead of satellite performance does not exude confidence about a fully operational satellite. Previously Alba had not announced receiving signals and no responses to questions, but objects are known in Space-Track as of 2020-04-18) 2019-12-06 375 km, 97 deg
