In the one-way setup, the state of LRO and the parameters of the spacecraft and all involved ground station clocks must be estimated simultaneously. solutions, Inc., 10001 Derekwood Ln., Suite 215, Lanham, MD 20706, (301) 306-1756, Steven.Slojkowski@ai-solutions.com Abstract: Results from operational OD produced by the NASA Goddard Flight Dynamics Facility for the LRO nominal and extended mission are presented. Controller Based on Flight Performance Neerav Shah Attitude Control System Engineering Branch NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Greenbelt, MD Abstract The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) was launched on June 18, 2009 and is currently in a 50 km mean altitude polar orbit around the Moon. Data collected by LRO is essential to planning future human and robotic missions to the Moon. Its primary objective is to conduct investigations to enable a human return to the moon. We used one-way laser ranging data from International Laser Ranging Service (ILRS) ground stations to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) for a demonstration of orbit determination.

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is a NASA robotic spacecraft currently orbiting the Moon in an eccentric polar mapping orbit. LRO is scheduled for a one-year exploration mission at a polar orbit of about 31 miles, or 50 kilometers, the closest any spacecraft has orbited the moon. The orbit is “near”-circular, as LRO’s altitude can vary between its lowest altitude (periapsis) of 35 km and its highest altitude (apoapsis) of 65-km over a twenty eight day period. LRO was designed and built by the … LEO: Diese Abkürzung aus dem englischen steht für L ow Earth Orbit, ein erdnaher Orbit. Normally the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) orbits the Moon in a 50 km altitude, near-circular, polar orbit. Man versteht darunter Orbits zwischen 200 und 600 km Höhe.
In diese Gruppe fallen zwei Nutzlasten: Mit niedriger Inklination und Höhen über 400 km sind dies bemannte Raumstationen und Satelliten, die nicht auf eine bestimmte Umlaufbahn festgelegt sind.
