  9. Satellite Drag Physical Model Module for a Near Real Time Operation Test Bed

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF11BT29

    ABSTRACT: Satellite drag is the leading cause of orbit prediction error in low earth orbit. Modeling of this drag force and its variability is critical to accurate orbit determination and prediction. One of the leading contributing factors to error in drag prediction is thermospheric neutral density variability. Operational models up until the present time have been empirical, with inputs includ ...
