It has recently been proposed to combine the node drifts of the future constellation of 27 Galileo spacecraft together with those of the existing LAGEOS-type satellites to improve the accuracy of the past and ongoing tests of the Lense-Thirring (LT) effect by removing the bias of a larger number of even zonal harmonics Jl than either done or planned so far. Actually, it seems a difficult goal to be achieved realistically for a number of reasons. First, the LT range signature of a Galileo-type…

Deconstructing Frame-Dragging

The vorticity of world-lines of observers associated with the rotation of a massive body was reported by Lense and Thirring more than a century ago. In their example, the frame-dragging effect

Polarization Tracking Study of Earth Station in Satellite Communications

TLDR
A study of polarization tracking of earth station is presented, and a detailed adjustment procession of the polarization angle is given, which can be embeded into computer program of antenna polarization adjustment in earth station.

On non-commutative geodesic motion

In this work we study the geodesic motion on a noncommutative space–time. As a result we find a non-commutative geodesic equation and then we derive corrections of the deviation angle per revolution

Mathematical Aspects for RNSS Constellation with IGSO Satellites

TLDR
Analysis shows obvious anomaly solutions happen several times in everyday positioning, therefore redundant satellites are needed in constellation optimization design for RNSS.

Preliminary study for the measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect with the Galileo satellites

The precession of the orbital node of a particle orbiting a rotating mass is known as Lense-Thirring effect (LTE) and is a manifestation of the general relativistic phenomenon of dragging of inertial

Testing General Relativity with LAGEOS, LAGEOS II and Ajisai laser-ranged satellites

The accuracy reached in the past few years by Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) allows for measuring even tiny features of the Earth's gravitational field predicted by Einstein's General Relativity by

Is it possible to improve the present LAGEOS–LAGEOS II Lense–Thirring experiment?

The Lense–Thirring effect is currently being measured by means of a combination of the orbital residuals of the nodes of LAGEOS and LAGEOS II and the perigee of LAGEOS II. The claimed total error

Error calibration of geopotential harmonics in recent and past gravitational fields

The geopotential coefficients of a number of recent and past models have been examined with the aim of calibrating their formal (or published) errors, principally by direct comparison with the same

Earth Tides and Lense–Thirring Effect

The general relativistic Lense—Thirring effect can be measured by inspecting a suitable combination of the orbital residuals of the nodes of LAGEOS and LAGEOS II and the perigee of LAGEOS II. The

Precise orbit determination of GIOVE-B based on the CONGO network

GIOVE-B is one of two test satellites for the future European Global Navigation Satellite System Galileo. The Cooperative Network for GIOVE Observation (CONGO) is a global tracking network of

The Impact of the Static Part of the Earth's Gravity Field on Some Tests of General Relativity with Satellite Laser Ranging

In this paper we calculate explicitly the classical secular precessions of the node Ω and the perigee ω of an Earth artificial satellite induced by the even zonal harmonics of the static part of the
