Abstract:

This document presents the theory, operation, and coding details of and experience with a computer program for the accurate prediction of the reentry corridor of an earth satellite undergoing orbital decay due to atmospheric friction. This program is also useful in the precision prediction of satellite positions for other purposes such as sensor calibration and weapon systems.
