Doppler Orbitography by Radiopositioning Integrated on Satellite (DORIS) Orbit Products from the NASA Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS). DORIS is a dual-frequency Doppler system consisting of a receiver flying aboard a satellite and a globally distributed network of ground beacons. DORIS data records contain a time-tagged range-rate measurement with associated ancillary information. DORIS observations from a global network can be utilized for a variety of products. Analysis Centers (ACs) of the International DORIS Service (IDS) retrieve DORIS data on a regular basis to compute various DORIS products from data generated by the DORIS beacons supporting the IDS network. These products include orbits of satellites with DORIS receivers onboard. These orbit products are available in SP1 or SP3 orbit format.
