Abstract:

The USNO VLBI Analysis Center is supported and operated by the United States Naval Observatory USNO in Washington, DC. The primary services provided by the Analysis Center are the analysis of diurnal experiments and the production of periodic VLBI global solutions for estimation of the Terrestrial Reference Frame TRF, the Celestial Reference Frame CRF and Earth Orientation Parameters EOP. The Analysis Center continued the submission to the IVS of Intensive EOP-I and session-based EOP-S Earth orientation parameters based on USNO VLBI global solutions. Analysis Center personnel maintain the necessary software required to continue these services to the IVS including periodic updates of the GSFC CALCSOLVE software package. In addition to operational VLBI analysis, Analysis Center personnel are actively engaged in research related to future reference frames, the electronic transfer of VLBI data, and software correlation.
