Abstract:

This report describes significant analyses and computer programming problems performed in support of Air Force Geophysics Laboratory scientists. Mathematical and logical procedures are discussed reference material and samples of results are presented. Various AFGL rapid orbit generation programs have been modified for satellite observation by aircraft, for prediction of longitude drift due to resonances, and for improved estimation of solar eclipsing. Geopotential model studies were conducted to identify significant terms and evaluate results in operational orbit determination programs. Ionospheric research programs include data reduction and analyses for plasma motion and electric field mapping, topside plasma monitoring on a Univac 1110, and scintillations modeling for equatorial and high latitude station coverage. A geographic-geomagnetic background continental outline plot program is also described. Analysis and data processing for the Multi-Spectral Measurement Program includes calibrations and initial flight data base design. A general data compaction routine for use with large data bases is described. A revised astronomical ephemeris program which uses the new JPL planetary system was developed. Author
