Guidelines for IGS Technical Report 2018


The Astronomical Institute at the University of Bern (AIUB), hosting the Center for Orbit Determination in Europe (CODE), has compiled the annual IGS Technical Report every year since its publication was resumed in 2011. The previous four IGS Technical Reports are available online at the following links. We appreciate your valuable contributions to the reports.

IGS Technical Report 2017
