The report discusses the organization, station network, optical tracking capabilities, and current observation programs of Soviet-bloc, primarily USSR, satellite observation stations. Emphasis is on the optical and radio facilities employed in near-space rather than deep-space tracking. The difficulties encountered by the Soviet Union in developing advanced tracking instrumentation and the methods elected to overcome them are outlined.
