The Preprocessor for the Differential Corrections Geocentric Orbit Computations Program FS4-305A is a data handling routine required in the reduction of satellite observations, and the computation of the associated trajectories. This program reads a specially generated magnetic tape containing coordinate data observations from a series of tracking stations. The data is smoothed, using least squares criteria, and then ordered. Primary ordering is time and secondary ordering is by station. Output includes a magnetic tape which is required as input for the Differential Corrections Geocentric Orbit Computations Program FS4-305.
