ELEC 4504 Avionics Technical Report
The purpose of this report is to investigate how spacecrafts determine their location. The two main parameters required to obtain a spacecraft’s position are its orbit and its attitude, this report will focus more on orbit determination. An objects attitude is a measurement of the object’s position measured relative to a designated object or an inertial reference, attitude motion measures the objects rotational motion about its mass centre. The orbit of an object can be described as the curved path it follows around a point in space due Continue reading...
