Introduction -- Orbital Prediction Error Propagation of Space Objects -- Orbital Error Analysis Based on Historical Data -- Close Approach Analysis between Space Object -- Calculation of Collision Probability -- Application of Collision Probability -- Orbital Anomaly and Space Events Analysis -- Environment and Flux Analysis of Space Debris.
This book introduces readers to the application of orbital data on space objects in the contexts of conjunction assessment and space situation analysis, including theories and methodologies. It addresses the main topics involved in space object conjunction assessment, such as: orbital error analysis of space objects; close approach analysis; the calculation, analysis and application of collision probability; and the comprehensive assessment of collision risk. In addition, selected topics on space situation analysis are also presented, including orbital anomaly and space event analysis, and so on. The book offers a valuable guide for researchers and engineers in the fields of astrodynamics, space telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C), space surveillance, space situational awareness, and space debris, as well as for graduates majoring in flight vehicle design and related fields..
