At face value this seems like a trivial question the TLE's are the input to SGP4, but my question is a little more specific.
Given a TLE, the values are in specific units (eg. argument of perigee is in degrees). The equations listed in space track report #3 do not specify (as far as I can tell - I don't know FORTRAN) what the units the values should be in for computation. Largely this may not matter (degree or radians is simply just a question of using the correct sin/cos) but for some of the equations where the values are multiplied by constants (EG. the equation for D4: has 221 * a0Dash and 31 * s) I'm concerned that the units used may matter!
As far as I can tell the following values are used by SGP4:
First Time Derivative of the Mean Motion divided by two BSTAR drag term Inclination Right ascension of the ascending node Eccentricity Argument of perigee Mean Anomaly Mean Motion Epoch
So what conversions must I make before I can start the set of equations outlined in space track report #3 page 10!
I should note that one of the motivations for asking this is the value AE is given as 1 in the constants section toward the end of the document, I can't for the life of me work out why this value has any place in the equations!
