This is a modern textbook that guides the reader through the theory and practice of satellite orbit prediction and determination.
Starting from the basic principles of orbital mechanics, it covers elaborate force models as well as precise methods of satellite tracking.
Emphasis is on numerical treatment and a multitude of algorithms adopted in modern satellite trajectory computation are described in detail.
The accompanying CD-ROM includes all source codes written in C++ and relevant data files for applications.
The result is a powerful and unique spaceflight dynamics library which allows easy software extensions by the user.
An extensive collection of Internet resources is provided through WWW hyperlinks to detailed and frequently updated online information on spaceflight dynamics.
The book addresses students, scientists working in the field of navigation, geodesy and spaceflight technology and satellite engineers and operators focusing on spaceflight dynamics..
