    Publications

    Title:                      DIWATA-1 Orbital Lifetime Analysis using Systems Tool Kit (STK) and Conjunction Probability Assessment through Satellite Orbital Conjunction Reports Assessing Threatening Encounters in Space (SOCRATES)

    Authors:                Rogel Mari D. Sese, Ph.D. and Adrian Josele G. Quional

    Description:           This paper presents an analysis of the orbital status of the first Filipino-made satellite, DIWATA-1, that has been conducted using open source tools such as STK and SOCRATES - the tools utilized to analyze its orbital lifetime based on the historical Two-Line Element Sets (TLEs) and to assess its probability of conjunction with other space objects. The methods provided a sufficient and timely status report but it is recommended that other more accurate methods be utilized for the future space program of the country.
