LARES is a new spherical geodetic satellite designed for SLR observations. It is made of solid tungsten alloy covered with 92 corner cubes. Due to a very small area-to-mass ratio, the sensitivity of LARES orbits to non-gravitational forces is greatly minimized. We processed 82 weeks (Feb12-Aug13) of LARES observations from a global SLR network and we analyzed the contribution of LARES data to the current SLR products (e.g., global scale and geocenter coordinates). The quality of the combined LARES+LAGEOS-1/2 solutions is also addressed in the paper. Introduction LARES
