Orbit Determinator is a project that aims to provide satellite’s tracking information to various researchers, university students and space enthusiasts who plan to launch their satellites (mainly CubeSats) into space.
The central idea to accomplish this is the position of the satellite at different time instances and then perform filtering and preliminary orbit determination techniques to get keplerian elements of the orbit. A CSV file is taken as input which has values in the format: (time, x-coordinate, y-coordinate, z-coordinate). This input sample has lots of jitter to perturbation and has to be. This project was carried out with Alexandros Kazantzidis under the guidance of Andreas Hornig.
Before the coding period started, I had already tried some smoothing / filtering techniques like as convolution and exponential smoothing with varying parameters and had an idea how to go about making changes.
