System of orbital computations (ORBIT1). Part 1: Time and coordinate systems.
Abstract
The purpose of the system of orbital computations, termed Orbit, is to improve the accuracy of satellite orbit determinations, on the basis of visual, photographic, and laser observations. In the present paper, the mathematical and physical background of the first version of the Orbit system (Orbit 1) is discussed.
