Paper Abstract

Element Quality Analysis (EQA) is the evaluation of the accuracy with which an orbital element set describes the orbit of a satellite. This paper proposes practical methods for evaluating element quality and describes the benefits of improved EQA. The paper first discusses the need for and applications of EQA. Past and current operational methods for EQA are then considered. The main portion of the paper describes alternative methods for EQA.
