The document describes the six modifications which have been added to the NRTPOD program in the form of extended capabilities. In addition, a separate stand-alone program which derives a preliminary estimate of an orbit and which is designed to be used in conjunction with NRTPOD is described. This report is intended to be an analysts guide to the NRTPOD modifications as well as an operational handbook with inputoutput instructions. A section is devoted to an analytical and operational discussion of the six modifications which have been added to the NRTPOD program. The mathematical derivations of the various program options are not given completely in this section, although pertinent references in which complete derivations are presented are given in each respective section. The program descriptions given in this document are intended to be supplemental to the mathematical and operational descriptions of NRTPOD as described in Functional Specifications of Lincoln Laboratory Orbit Determination Programs. In addition to the functional specifications of the NRTPOD modifications and the inputoutput instructions, a section of new and modified subroutines is included.
