Abstract:

Atmospheric densities are computed from analysis of Doppler beacon satellite data. Modifications to Doppler beacon data processing program CELEST necessary for this study are described. Results obtained for satellites DB-76382, DB-86727, and DB-96928 are found to be in good agreement with those obtained by analysis of skin track data for the same satellites using program CADNIP.
