AN ALGORITHM FOR PRELIMINARY HEO ORBITAL PARAMETER DETERMINATION BASED ON THREE OPTICAL POSITIONAL MEASUREMENTSBoykov V.F., Khutorovsky Z.N., Sbytov N.N.International Corporation “Vympel”
An algorithm of preliminary HEO orbital parameters determinations based on three optical
positional measurements is described. The algorithm is a union of the Gauss three optical
measurements based initial orbit determination algorithm and the BettinGauss algorithm of
orbit determination based on two radius vectors spaced at a significant angular distance within
one orbit. Results of the algorithm for real examples are presented as well as proposals for the
algorithm implementation in different tasks.
