International SLR Service

The paper presents the current state of the International Laser Ranging Service (ILRS): distribution of the SLR stations, data centers, analysis centers. The paper includes also the information about the last International Workshop on Laser Ranging in Bad Koetzting, 16-20 May, 2011. The problems of quality of the SLR data are presented. The list of parameters which can be used for estimation of the accuracy of the SLR data for each station is given. Results of determination of the station position stabilities over long term period (from 1994 up to 2008) for the selected few main stations are presented in the five years blocks. The results show slight deterioration of accuracy observed for the last several years and the reasons for this effect are indicated.
