LAser GEOdynamics Satellite (LAGEOS)

LAser GEOdynamics Satellite-1 (LAGEOS) was designed by NASA and
launched in 1976. It was the first spacecraft dedicated exclusively to high-precision laser ranging and provided the
first opportunity to acquire laser-ranging data that were not degraded by errors originating in the satellite orbit or
satellite array. LAGEOS-2, based on the LAGEOS-1 design, was built by the Italian Space Agency and was
launched in 1992.
