Abstract : The document describes a computer program designed and written to implement portions of the mathematics and procedures described in 'Advanced techniques for the reduction of geodetic SECOR observations' AD-640 238, required for the rigorous adjustment of Satellite tracking data acquired from the SECOR system. The program has been completely implemented on the Control Data Model 3100 digital computer. The computer program was written almost entirely in the FORTRAN language system which allows its adaptation to other type computer systems with relative ease. (Author)
