Universal algorithm for inverting the cartesian to geodetic transformation Conference Paper uri icon


  • A singularity-free solution is presented for inverting the Cartesian to Geodetic transformation. Two rapidly converging generalized continued fraction algorithms are presented for handling applications spanning the LEO to GEO range of applications. Comparisons with state-of-the-art algorithms are provided for solution accuracy and run-time performance.
