Satellite overflight warning is critical for Fleet ability to operate and fight against near-peer adversaries. SATVUL planning systems provide advance notification of overflight by spacecraft. Satellite operation depends on orbit planning, which requires prediction and analysis of orbits.
Multiple satellite orbit prediction models exist, with different characteristics. Proposed research evaluates impact of advances from space science, including newer 3LE and 4LE models. Research will derive mathematical and computational differences among the models and assess their impact from analysis of model predictions and comparisons to measured data.
In the newest space advancement, 3LEs and 4LEs will be released respectively for more accurate predictions. Using new precise models instead of TLEs as input, what are the differences in orbit predictions and what is their impact? That holds the key for future SATVUL planning and is what we plan to determine through this research at this crucial point.
