A QUICK METHOD FOR GRAPHICAL PREDICTION OF SATELLITE POSITION
NAVAL ORDNANCE TEST STATION CHINA LAKE CALIF

This is done with the help of a gnomonic projection map and a satellite coordinate conversion grid. The predictions made by this method are of sufficient accuracy for most optical and radio tracking purposes. Author
