Session: Precision Orbit Determination

Presentation type: Type Poster

As one of the tracking systems used to determine orbits of the altimeter mission satellites (such as TOPEX/Poseidon, Envisat, Jason-1/2/3 & Cryosat-2), the position of the DORIS tracking stations provides a fundamental reference for the estimation of the precise orbits and so, by extension is fundamental for the quality of the altimeter data and derived products. Therefore, the time evolution of the position of both the existing and the newest DORIS stations must be precisely modeled and regularly updated. . To satisfy operational requirements for precise orbit determination and routine delivery of geodetic products, the International DORIS Service maintains the so-called DPOD solutions, which can be seen as extensions of the latest available ITRF solution from the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS).
In mid-2016, the IDS agreed to change the processing strategy of the DPOD solution. The new solution from the IDS Combination Center (CC) consists of a DORIS cumulative position and velocity solution using the latest IDS combined weekly solutions. The first objective of this study is to describe the new DPOD elaboration scheme and to show the IDS CC internal validation steps. The second purpose is to present the external validation process made by an external team before the new DPOD is made available to all the users. The elaboration and validation procedures will be illustrated by preliminary tests done with the ITRF2008 solution and by the presentation first version of the DPOD2014 (ITRF2014 DORIS extension) and validation.
