The following elements are based on observations by Kevin Fetter, Jon Mikel, Alberto Rango and Brad Young:

OTV 3                                                    338 X 367 km

Arc 20140601.35-0613.16 WRMS resid 0.073 totl 0.032 xtrk

We now have a reliable orbit. 

As in the past, the object appears to make frequent manoeuvres to counter the effects of drag.
