Abstract : This paper describes a type of equipment that is being developed to measure the time integral of the Doppler frequency received from a satellite, for use in geometrical geodesy. Experimental results of the instrumentation errors obtained with prototype equipment are given, and it is shown that the errors compare favorably with those from the Doppler tracking stations in the TRANET System. Some geometric results obtained with tracking stations located withing the continental United States are also given. (Author)
