A while back the US Air Force has launched several SBIRS Satellites in high orbital space that can track ICBMs over Earth...The webpage below which you can track other satallites the SBIRS ones are not listed...IS there another name for these satellites that can detect an ICBM or monitor missile launches high above the Earth? There called Space Based Infrared Satellites systems which were launched by many Titan launches as the payload and then became our US Air Force's ICBM missile detection satallites using the SGI Onyx 3000 and the SGI Origin 3000 series servers. Heres the website, but even under US Air Force, I cannot seem to locate it. I wish to track these satellites. Here are some other websites on what I mean by SBIRS Satellites:
http://www.fas.org/spp/military/program/warning/index.html

There are two types: One are LOW and one are HIGH...And the HIGH ones detect the ICBMs using the SGI 3000 series Visualization servers...

Where can I track these? Or, is there another name for these SBIRS so I can track them using the J-Track 3D system website below? So is there any way I can track these SBIRS satellites on the J-Track system? But I need to know their other ACTUAL satelite names in order to track them...They just say SBIRS but I need to know their actual satelite names in order to track them.

Well I don't think those would be listed. And after looking, it appears only 4 sat's are listed for defense. GPS and few others. As an aside though, if you have to ask, then you probably don't have a need to know.

SBIRS-High is the replacement program. I don't think any have launched yet. The current program is called Defense Support Program (DSP.) Although the satellites themselves are no longer classified, their tracking information might be restricted information and not on the tracking programs.
