Paper Abstract

Abstract: the orbit determination exclusively using single station SLR(Satellite Laser Ranging) data is unviable, which limits the application of SLR technology in the observation of space debris. The paper puts forward that the orbit determination can be achieved through using SLR data assisted by the proper weighted telescope pointing data of the SLR system. To process the SLR data of AJISAI satellite by the above method, the data consist of the orbital arcs with 3-day spans, the precision of orbit determination is about 10 cm. Discussion shows that space debris orbit determination by the above method is also feasible.
