A large number of symmetric circular orbit satellite constellations were tested for their worth in providing continuous surveillance of five selected corps-sized regions over various parts of the world. The results of this work when combined with results from a previous report can be used to evaluate the target location mensuration capability of a variety of target mensuration systems located on satellite platforms defined by the constellations.
