Abstract:

This report covers the development of the satellite portion of the Geodetic Sequential Collation of Range SECOR System. The purpose of the system was to provide geodetic coordinates of a ground point located from 160 to 4800 kilometers from known geodetic positions. The system consisted of four or more transportable ground stations which electronically determined distances to a satellite-borne transponder. Subject matter discussed herein will be primarily confined to the historical development of the satellitetransponder portion of the SECOR System.
