- Station positions for the GEOS 3 C Band tracking network were estimated using C Band and laser data taken during a two-week concentrated tracking period. The C Band stations are located primarily in the continental United States and on Western Atlantic islands. The network, however, included stations in Hawaii, in West Germany, and on Kwajalein atoll. Estimated accuracies for the recovered positions are 2 m for the continental U. S. and Atlantic sites, 5 m for Hawaii, and 10 m for Kwajalein. The dominant contributor to these uncertainties is geopotential model error. Thus, the C Band/laser data set could be used for more accurate center-of-mass positioning of a continental network of stations.
