Abstract : A compilation is presented of results from the Fixed Bias Covariance computer program. The program is used to determine errors in prediction of satellite position resulting from tracking equipment inaccuracies. Most of the computer runs were made to answer specific questions about particular tracking situations, and thus an overall plan governing their choice will not be discerned. However, the collection of the data may be of general interest for preliminary estimates of tracking requirements for other systems and for planning future studies. (Author)
