Orbital Design of Satellite for Geodetic Applications
ZHANG Chuan ding (Zhengzhou Institute of Surveying and Mapping, Zhengzhou 450052,China)
The ephemeris formulas of the ellipsoidal surface orbital motion are derived. The orbital motion is a constraint solution in the ellipsoidal harmonic field. If a satellite is designed around an ellipsoidal surface, the orbital motion can be used as a good reference orbit for orbital design of satellite for geodetic applications.
