Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The linear error theory used in our previous work developing an extended Kalman filter formulation in Burdet regularized coordinates for the purpose of estimating the unperturbed two-body motion of Earth-orbiting satellites is improved upon. Critical challenges in implementation arise as a result of this formulation and are addressed. Simulated orbit determination is conducted in the regularized space and using a traditional Cartesian extended Kalman filter for comparison.
