Abstract : Survey adjustments and improved survey accuracies were obtained for four AFETR downrange Mistram/MRS sites from this study. Data used were radar range-only and ballistic camera data. The results were combined with data from previous studies to produce a combined weighted mean survey adjustment. Data from Geos B, Echo II, and Pageos were combined with previous data from Geos A, Anna, and Minuteman. (Author)
