They've been working on replacing the early warning net. The ones up there are low on fuel and have older sensors on board. The newer ones are capable of doing more than just watching for launches.

At a guess I'd say something like the X37B or 'Orbital test vehicle' was sent back up. It would be a really fast turn around time from the Oct landing but it might be a second new generation one. It was interesting that they launched despite pretty poor weather.
