Paper Abstract

Satellite laser ranging station close Helwan, a suburb of Egyptian capital city Cairo, is the cooperative lab of the astronomical department of National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics, Egypt and the department of physical electronics of Czech Technical University, Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, Czech Republic. The aim of the station is the accurate and precise measurement of distance between station reference point and some artificial satellites. The measurement is based on an optical radar principle. The station location is determined by both attractive location from point of view geosciences and acceptable local climatic conditions. We are reporting about the involving local staff in the daily operation of the station and about influence of the training, motivation and local staff qualification improvement on measurement results.
