THE CEOS DATABASE : Missions, Instruments and Measurements
Full Name Laser Corner Cube Reflector Assembly Status Operational
Instrument Agencies ASI Maturity
Instrument Type Precision orbit Geometry TBD
Instrument Technology Laser retroreflector Sampling Other
Data Access Open Access Data Format -
Measurements and Applications Accuracy measurements on Lense-Thirring effect and baseline tracking data for General Relativity study and precision geodesy. Also for calibration of radar altimeter bias. Retro-reflectors are smaller (about 1 inch in diameter) than those mounted onboard LARES-1 and their number is much greater (about 300).
