COMPARISION OF DIFFERENT METHODS OF LEO SATELLITE ORBIT DETERMINATION FOR A SINGLE PASS THROUGH A RADAR Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • The primary approaches used for orbit determination on the basis of a single pass through a radar are recursive (Kalman filter) and joint (least squares). If the stochastic characteristics of the errors are not completely known or the measurement errors are time correlated these techniques do not provide a guaranteed evaluation of the errors of the generated estimates. This is a significant limitation. This paper presents a comparative analysis (based on computer simulation) for the procedures based on the Guarantee method and traditional re t current and joint processtng techniques.
