Operational Protocols
Verify orbit determination and prediction methods based on navigation satellite systems, and issue of recommendations for their nominal utilization. Develop the ISS motion determination procedures and software based on the satellite navigation system measurements with regard to the ISS attitude data. Compare predicted values of the ISS motion parameters with the navigation measurement data. Update the prediction model parameters based on the derived mismatch. Generate the experimental system of ISS motion high-precision prediction based on the developed models of the ISS disturbances, motion determination and prediction procedures and experimentally updated parameters of the ISS motion prediction models.
