    Title Analysis of the Radiation Pressure and Aerodynamic effects on Earth orbiting satellites for Precise Orbit Determination (POD) applications.
    Supervisor Prof. Stefano Casotto
    Description A new methodology is proposed to address the problem of describing the main nongravitational forces acting on Earth satellites for precise orbit determination applications.
    Different databases of force coefficients are developed for what concerns the satellite Aerodynamics, Solar Radiation Pressure, Earth Radiation Pressure, and spacecraft Thermal Re-Radiation, which are used by the NAPEOS software system to improve the POD results.
