Orbit determination of FedSat based on GPS receiver position solutions – first results

Enderle, Werner, Feng, Yanming, & Zhou, Ning (2003) Orbit determination of FedSat based on GPS receiver position solutions – first results. In 6th International Symposium of Satellite Navigation Technology and Applications, 22-25 July 2003, Melbourne, Australia.


On 14th December 2002, the Australian small satellite FedSat was launched with a Japanese HII-A rocket into an 800 km sun-synchronous orbit with an inclination of 98.6 degrees. One of the payloads is a dual frequency GPS BlackJack receiver from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). This receiver provides a Position, Velocity and Time (PVT) solution and also raw measurements (code and carrier), which will be used in different ways for Precise Orbit Determination (POD), Orbit Determination (OD) based on GPS position solutions, 2-axis Attitude Determination (AD) and atmospheric experiments.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
