COURSE DESCRIPTION

Effects of space environment on satellite orbits. Numerical models used to compute orbital perturbations.

Time is split 50% between standard classes and hands-on computer room time, where they should build a propagator using a skeleton program and standard models code.

 

OBJETIVES

The students should be able to understand the effects of space environment over the orbit: gravitational (aspherical gravitational field, third-body perturbation) and non-gravitational (atmospheric, ionospheric, magnetospheric, radiation pressure, debris/micrometeoroid impact), as well as over the attitude.
They should know and handle the different models in use, and be able to select which effects/models to include for each application.

 

EVALUATION

Each student should write an orbit propagator including a suitable number of perturbations.
