Mission Operations Navigation Services



Document Number


2.04 Spacecraft Monitoring and Control Working Group

Document Type


Description of Document

The Navigation services are concerned with the provision of information classes that are specific to Flight Dynamics.  These include:
- Orbit Vectors
- Attitude Vectors
- Predicted Orbital Events (including Ground Station visibilities)
- Physical State
- Fuel Budget Assessments
- Position reports (e.g., from on-board GPS)
- Spacecraft Ranging and Range Rate measurements (e.g., from ground station ranging or laser ranging equipment)
- Antenna Tracking azimuth and elevation (e.g., from ground station in auto-track mode).

It does not include how these information classes are created or modelled.
