[17 Aug 2012] V2 webpage created. Internal use only.
[17 Aug 2012] Major Upgrade [v2]. New POD software: "c5++", compatible with IERS Conventions (2010). New computer: Mouse computer's MDV-EGF7000X with AMD 8-core FX-8150, Ubuntu 12.04, integrating the data fetching PC and the orbit computing PC into one. Update frequency: every 6 hours, approx. 2:30, 8:30, 14:30 and 20:30 UTC each of which covers 14 days up to 0h, 6h, 12h and 18h UTC of the day, respectively.

[9 Mar 2012] a new satellite LARES, marked as "LARS", is included.
[8 Jul 2011] ERS-2 retires (ESA News) and is removed from our analysis.
[7 Jun 2011] New TRF: SLRF2008 (ILRS webpage).
[28 Apr 2011] new email address: t.otsubo@r.hit-u.ac.jp, please update your address book. Power supply has been stable in Apr, and will be ok in May.
[14 Mar 2011] a series of power outage expected from today due to the energy issues caused by the huge earthquake occurred on 11 March. This server will be occasionally shut down.
[03 Aug 2010] updated coordinates (based upon ILRS AWG discussion): 7405 (text file).
[17 Jul 2010] Analysis computer replaced due to a sudden failure of a 5-year old Epson NT9500Pro. New PC is a bit slower, Dell Inspiron 1526 (AMD Turion 64 TK-57 1.9GHz).
[02 Jul 2010] new/updated coordinates (based upon ILRS AWG discussion): 1824, 1879, 7405 (text file).
[13 May 2010] A special quicklook analysis on the coseismic displacement of Concepcion TIGO SLR station is placed here. Note that 2 to 3 metres biases of Concepcion (7405) is not due to their measurement error, but due to this 3.19-m displacement.
[13 Apr 2010] New statistics on "hit rate" of the ILRS Top-20 stations are available here.
