Welcome to the
|ILRS Fall 2005 Workshop Website
Observations toward mm ACCURACY
There remain several issues to resolve as we work towards maximising the effectiveness and accuracy of the ILRS tracking network and end products. The aim of this informal workshop is for technologists and analysts together to address specific questions that arise from this effort. The meeting will be a good opportunity for instance to examine and report systems' responses at different energy levels and for different targets, to confirm that existing software produces a standard, user independent data set and discuss ways forward for multi-colour ranging and associated environmental models.
and Photos are now
being assembled for the Workshop in Eastbourne during
the week beginning Monday 3rd October 2005.
Eastbourne is situated on the coast of South East
England and is about 10 kilometres from the
Herstmonceux Facility. The Workshop venue is the
T&G conference centre situated on the
Eastbourne seafront, which will provide conference
facilities and accommodation for delegates.
Directions to the Conference centre can be found
Currently the ILRS Working Groups are discussing topics for inclusion in the sessions. It is likely that delegates will be asked to perform specific experiments in advance to contribute to some sessions. This will include performing High/Low return rate tests and supplying current reduction software for comparison. Descriptions of experiments requested for some sessions are to be found here.
The Workshop will inclde
a trip to visit the Space Geodesy Facility at
Herstmonceux, which is situated in the grounds of
Herstmonceux castle. Besides the laser ranging system,
which is being upgraded to perform KHz ranging, the
Facility hosts two IGS GPS/GLONASS receivers and will
be in the early stages of running an FG5 absolute
gravimeter which is to be permanently installed in a
basement at the Facility.
