Abstract:

A mathematical and functional description of the Sun-Moon-Transformation angle support software package is presented. This software package constructs a file on magnetic tape of inertial solar and lunar position vectors and nutation angles, as well as values for the obliquity of the ecliptic and the equation of the equinoxes. These data may be generated in either the B1950.0 or the J2000.0 reference systems and are intended for use by the PULSAR Doppler Satellite tracking data editor. Author
