Angle Only Orbit Determination Using a Telescope System

Köker, Abdülkadir

The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of the angle only measurements on orbit determination accuracy. Telescope angle measurements are simulated using System Tool Kit simulation software. Noise is added to the data as well. The effect of various factors on estimation accuracy such as, measurement frequency, observation duration, and number of observation sites (i.e., telescopes) are investigated. Estimation methods, extended and unscented Kalman filters are employed and compared.
