Moyer, Theodore D.
2000
When determining the trajectory of a spacecraft, computed values of observed quantities are fitted
to the observables by varying the values of model parameters. The estimated values of these
"solve-for" parameters determine the trajectory of the spacecraft. This report documents the
current (as of 2000) formulation for the observed and computed values of the observables and the
corresponding partial derivatives of the computed observables with respect to the "solve-for"
parameters. This formulation is used in program REGRES of the Orbit Determination Program (ODP) at
the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. This third-generation program has been used to determine spacecraft
trajectories for lunar and planetary missions since 1968. More recently, it has also been used to
determine the orbits of Earth satellites. This is the original (and only) version of a monograph
on observed and computed DSN tracking data types by Ted Moyer.
