An experimental computer program is described, which calculates Earth Satellite ephemerides, corrects orbit elements and evaluates the effects of various terms of the bulge perturbation theory. Perturbations by solar radiation pressure and atmospheric drag are also represented ted. The differential correction employs a weighted least-squares reduction. Formulation, flow charts, input formats and sample cases are given.
