The program described was devised primarily to provide acquisition data to a ground-based instrumentation net consisting mainly of various types of cameras. The cameras are employed to photograph a flashing strobe light that is mounted on each pole of the ANNA geodetic satellite that is magnetically stabilized along its spin axis. Provisions were made to compute a satellite ephemeris by a differential correction procedure as the satellite is stepped around the orbit in some desired increment of time.
