This report provides preliminary results pertaining to the applicability to the JASON program of a retroreflector array designed, built, and space qualified by the Naval Research Laboratory for Low Earth Orbiting spacecraft. In this report, we will describe the assumptions we used for link analysis as they pertain to Passes 44 and 85 over Capraia Island. We provide figures and discussions pertinent to a single retroreflectors performance and the arrays performance over the site. We also include a description and photo of the array itself, as well as the test and levels used to space qualify the array.
