Paper Abstract

PW-Sat satellite has been launched into the orbit together with eight other small satellites. After the launch and separation they were occupying very close positions (what has been indicated by radar observations), so it was impossible to determine which object was PW-Sat. This article describes how the exact position of satellite has been determined by means of precision signal reception and employing Doppler shift calculations.
