Abstract:

The TRACE-D computer program is designed for use on the digital computer as the principal tool in design and analysis studies of all aspects of orbital operations. Its principal characteristics are completeness of the equations of motion, a comprehensive set of differential correction parameters, and the ability to simultaneously process observations of several satellites taken by a number of different types of sensors. The report includes objectives, equations, program structure, and complete instructions for input data preparation and program operation.
