High Accuracy Orbital Prediction

The capability to predict the orbital decay of satellites and orbiting bodies is becoming increasingly important.

Our team has expertise in high accuracy orbit modelling, accurate determination of orbital decay, determination of satellite drag coefficient and reflectivity coefficient.  The team has the experience and know-how to effectively transform the inherently low accuracy, yet abundant, satellite ephemerides data source of Two-Line Element sets into high quality and useful data for the scientific and engineering fields.

The methods used to predict orbital decay may also be used to analyse thermospheric density, high altitude atmospheric winds and solar radiation pressure.
