Status of precise orbit determination of altimetry satellites at DGFI-TUM
Event: 2019 Ocean Surface Topography Science Team Meeting
Session: Precision Orbit Determination
Presentation type: Type Poster
The status of precise orbit determination of current altimetry satellites, such as Jason-2, Jason-3, Cryosat-2 and SARAL, and the past altimetry satellite Jason-1 at DGFI-TUM using SLR and DORIS measurements and the “DGFI Orbit and Geodetic parameter estimation Software” will be presented. The impact of various factors, such as reference frame realizations, Earth’s time-variable gravity field models, as well as satellite attitude modeling on the orbit quality will be discussed.
