Abstract: This document describes in general terms the spacecraft navigation process at JPL and the institutional elements involved in this effort. It cutlines the major computer and software systems used and indicates the basic functions of each of these components. It provides a thumbnail sketch of the OD portion of the navigation process by presenting the fundementals of OD as performed at JPL. In discussing the more recent history of the ODP at JPL including its use in research and flight operations, it covers the implementation of the system on JPL's General Purpose Computing Facility (GPCF) computers, it maintenance, daily operation and continuing development.
