Artificial near-earth satellites are prolific sources of geodetic information-data about the size and shape of the earth and its gravitation field. The Naval Weapons Laboratory, through the Satellite Geophysics Program, has been involved in satellite orbit determination and geodesy since 1960. This report provides an over-view description of the NWL Satellite Geophysics Program, its functions, operations, and computer programs. Pertinent billets for the Astronautics Division KA of the Computation and Analysis Laboratory K-Lab are described. Author
