A computing program for determining errors in position and velocity on a satellite orbit. Error coefficients are computed from analytic formulas. These may be used in the further computation of systematic and random errors in the prediction of satellite position and velocity. The computing program handles the propagation of variance-covariance and the determination of confidence regions for position and velocity estimates. 61 pp.
