Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The longitude reference of the Navy Navigation Satellite System (TRANSIT), published in 1971 has been recomputed based on a new geophysical model (WGS 72) and on an improved orbit determination program. The resulting geodetic longitude reference of the updated system agrees closely with the previous one.
