DEOS precise ERS-1 orbits are based on the DGM-E04 gravity field model and SLR and OPR2 altimeter crossovers and normal points. Because of the delay of the availability of OPR2 data these orbits are available in about 4 month after real time.
The orbits can be downloaded from the DEOS or NOAA ftp servers. The orbits are stored as separate ODR files. Downloading of these files by normal FTP is more practical if you experience bad connections.
