The major elements of the GLOTRAC Global Tracking Network are described and a brief discussion of their individual capabilities presented. The performance of ground stations assigned to Segment 1 at AMR is examined based on computer simulations and on an informal tracking test in connection with the MA-9 Mercury launch. Considerations involved in the growth of GLOTRAC to an integrated tracking, telecommunications, command and control system are discussed.
