US Navy Doppler Data

NSSDCA ID: ESGP-00018

Availability: Data Accessible Elsewhere

Time span: 1964-11-11 to 1965-03-30

Description

This data set consists of 26,957 reduced geodetic Doppler observations obtained by the U.S. Navy Doppler Tracking System. The data, which were submitted on magnetic tape by the observing network, were quality checked for reasonableness, sorted, and merged (20 logical records per physical record) onto master tapes. Parameters for each observation include station number, UT, Doppler frequency shift in cycles per second, preprocessing report number, and a description of random errors. A complete description of the data format can be found in 'Support Activity of the Geodetic Satallite Data Service,' GSFC-NSSDC, November 1965.
