An Improved Approach to Orbital Determination and Prediction of Near-Earth Asteroids: Computer Simulation, Modeling and Test Measurements

  title={An Improved Approach to Orbital Determination and Prediction of Near-Earth Asteroids: Computer Simulation, Modeling and Test Measurements},
  author={Muhammad Farae and Cameron Woo and Anka Hu},
In this article, theory-based analytical methodologies of astrophysics employed in the modern era are suitably operated alongside a test research-grade telescope to image and determine the orbit of a near-earth asteroid from original observations, measurements, and calculations. Subsequently, its intrinsic orbital path has been calculated including the chance it would likely impact Earth in the time ahead. More so specifically, this case-study incorporates the most effective, feasible, and… Expand


An initial orbit determination method from relative position increment measurements
An initial orbit determination method using only relative position increment measurements and their corresponding epoch is proposed, which can obtain an acceptable result from a 20% portion of an orbit when the signal-to-noise ratio is set at 15 dB. Expand
Autonomous Orbit Determination for a Hybrid Constellation
The main idea of the scheme is to use a combination of imagery, altimeter data, and inter-satellite range data as measurements and determine orbits of the satellites in the hybrid constellation with the help of the extended Kalman filter (EKF). Expand
New Approach to Halo Orbit Determination and Control
A simple, iterative numerical method for the determination of halo orbits of the circular restricted three-body problem is developed. The nonlinearities inherent to the halo orbit problem are treatedExpand
Binary Asteroids in the Near-Earth Object Population
This system and other binary near-Earth asteroids have spheroidal primaries spinning near the breakup point for strengthless bodies, suggesting that the binaries formed by spin-up and fission, probably as a result of tidal disruption during close planetary encounters, may be binary systems. Expand
Estimating the mass of asteroid 253 mathilde from tracking data during the NEAR flyby
The terminal navigation of the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) spacecraft during its close flyby of asteroid 253 Mathilde involved coordinated efforts to determine the heliocentric orbits ofExpand
