Abstract : The report summarizes the mathematical and data analyses performed in the solution of scientific satellite data problems and describes the design and development of the processing systems which implemented these analyses. The processing systems described range in complexity from the initial reduction of the DMS-1 satellite accelerometer data to the detailed systems used in the reduction of data from the Cannonball II and OV1-21 satellites. A brief description of each satellite and its data processing requirements are given as an introduction to each system. The processing systems are in turn divided into sections by experiment type and output configuration. Many of the results described herein were incorporated by analysts and experimenters into presentations given at scientific meetings. (Author)
