Contributions from DGFI-TUM to the ILRS (International Laser Ranging Service)

The EUROLAS Data Center (EDC) is one of the two data centers of the International Laser Ranging Service (ILRS). It collects, archives and distributes tracking data, predictions and other tracking relevant information from the global SLR network. Additionally EDC holds a mirror of the official Web-Pages of the ILRS at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).


And as result of the activities of the ILRS/Analysis Standing Committee (ASC) DGFI has been selected as analysis centers (AC). This task includes daily processing of SLR observations to LAGEOS-1/2 and ETALON-1/2 to compute station coordinates and earth orientation parameters. And weekly processing of satellite orbits.


DGFI is also member of the Quality Control Boasd (QCB) .
