Abstract:

This report discusses the in-house computational analysis capability of the RADCHP 9820A Calculator and some of its peripheral equipment. Descriptions are given of several programs that were developed to rapidly ascertain the merits of specific geodetic sensor locations exercised against specific classes of satellitemissile trajectories. With its constraint parameters, the specified sensors volumetric visibility coverage is projected on the same Mercator Projection Map as the satellitemissile earth track. Thus, graphically, the user can determine the probability of satellitemissile observation.
