Rapid response quality control service for the laser ranging tracking network
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2018-09-10)
Quality control systems for satellite laser ranging (SLR) observations have been developed at a number of analysis institutes worldwide, using various software packages of precise orbit determination and data analysis. ...
Transitioning the NASA SLR network to Event Timing Mode for reduced systematics, improved stability and data precision
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2019-11-21)
NASA’s legacy Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) network produces about one-third of the global SLR data to support space geodesy. This network of globally distributed stations has been using Time Interval Units (TIU) for range ...
An improved test of the general relativistic effect of frame-dragging using the LARES and LAGEOS satellites
(Springer Nature, 2019-10-23)
We report the improved test of frame-dragging, an intriguing phenomenon predicted by Einstein’s General Relativity, obtained using 7 years of Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) data of the satellite LARES (ASI, 2012) and 26 ...
Preface to the second special issue on Laser Ranging
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2019-10-10)
Reply to “A comment on “A test of general relativity using the LARES and LAGEOS satellites and a GRACE Earth gravity model, by I. Ciufolini et al.””
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2018-10-30)
In 2016, we published “A test of general relativity using the LARES and LAGEOS satellites and a GRACE Earth’s gravity model. Measurement of Earth’s dragging of inertial frames ”, a measurement of frame-dragging, a ...
Satellite Laser-Ranging as a Probe of Fundamental Physics
(Nature Research, 2019-06)
Satellite laser-ranging is successfully used in space geodesy, geodynamics and Earth sciences; and to test fundamental physics and specific features of General Relativity. We present a confirmation to approximately one ...
SLR Requirements for the Development of the ITRF

Modeling Revisions for Improved Reprocessing for ITRF2020
(National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2018-11-05)
The ILRS: approaching 20 years and planning for the future
(Springer Nature Switzerland AG., 2019-03-19)
The International Laser Ranging Service (ILRS) was established by the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) in 1998 to support programs in geodesy, geophysics, fundamental constants and lunar research, and to provide ...
Evaluation of the 2013 NGSLR and MOBLAS-7 Co-location Dataset at GGAO
