*GNSS SATELLITE ORBIT MODELLING*.
In the frame of the project funding for a
*PhD CANDIDATE* and a *RESEARCH ASSISTANT*
is available. The project is intended to improve the understanding of orbit modelling for all Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) in the frame of the multi-GNSS experiment (MGEX) of the International GNSS Service (IGS). Based on the MGEX solution from CODE (Center for Orbit Determination in Europe, hosted at AIUB) new strategies for attitude modelling and orbit parameterizations, e.g. for solar radiation pressure modelling, shall be implemented and tested. The orbits for GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, and QZSS shall be investigated, modelled, and parameterized in a fully consistent way.
The project shall help to understand how potential deficiencies in the orbit modelling map into GNSS-derived parameters relevant for geodesy and geodynamics.
