USNO VLBI Intensive Solution i2005c
Presented here is the U.S. Naval Observatory's i2005c
analysis of 1.5 hr dualfrequency VLBI sessions carried out under the
auspices of the International VLBI Service (IVS) Intensive Program.
UT1 angles are determined for each session between 2000 July 06 and
2005 October 12 using dualfrequency observations obtained at 8.4 GHz
(Xband) and 2.2 GHz (Sband).
The SOLVE batch control file
int2005c.cnt.gz was used to generate a leastsquares solution with
an output spool file
int2005c.spl.gz. Tabulated below are the session values from this
solution.
Earth Orientation Parameters
UT1 angle is determined for each session separately.

Linear Regression: bias = 13.9 +/ 0.7 microseconds at J2000
Linear Regression: rate = 3.7 +/ 0.5 nanoseconds/day
Residuals: w.r.m.s. = 11.2 microseconds
Residuals: chi2/ndg = 1.45
