Non-gravitational accelerations measurements by means of an on-board accelerometer for the Second Generation Galileo Global Navigation Satellite System
TLDR
The models developed so far to account for the Non-Gravitational Perturbations acting on the satellites of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) constitute the present limit for further improvements in the Precise Orbit Determination (POD) of these satellites. Expand

A NEW GENERAL MODEL FOR THE EVOLUTION OF THE SPIN VECTOR OF THE TWO LAGEOS SATELLITES AND LARES AND THE LARASE RESEARCH PROGRAM
We present a new general model to calculate the evolution of the spin of passive, conductive and spherical satellites such as the two LAGEOS and LARES. The knowledge of the spin, both in orientationExpand
