Abstract:

Consideration of an elementary figure making it possible to determine direction and length of a space triangulation chord by simultaneous photographic and Doppler observations from a satellite. A formula is suggested for a priori estimate of accuracy of chord length and, based on an analysis of it, recommendations are made about optimal dimensions and shape of the figure. A method is suggested for leveling the triangulation observations considered, by means of conditions with additional unknowns. Author
