The Urgent mail exploder is used by mission control centers or prediction centers to inform station operators about any urgent matters concerning the tracking of their respective satellites (e.g., modification of tracking priorities, information about satellites with unusually large time biases, attitude problems of satellites, upcoming maneuvers, tracking information after the launch of new satellites). URGENT was proposed by Werner Gurtner and Carey Noll to the ILRS via SLRMail 0645 on 16 August 2000.

For more information about URGENT read SLRMail 0645, SLRMail 0662, SLRMail 1116, and SLRMail 1121.
