Conference Paper
Full-text available
Verification of the java Orekit implementation of the Draper Semi-analytical Satellite Theory (DSST) is discussed. The Orekit library for space flight dynamics has been published under the open-source Apache license V2. The DSST is unique among analytical and semi-analytical satellite theories due to the scope of the included force models. However,...

The Fraser River is the source of most particulate matter in the Strait of Georgia, and its dispersal is modulated by the Fraser’s plume. Here we examine the plume’s shape, location, and area, and the variation of these parameters with changes in wind and river forcing by examining a 13-year time series of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiome...

Since the launch of Sputnik-I in 1957, the amount of space debris in Earth’s orbit has steadily increased. Historically, the primary sources of space debris in Earth’s orbit were (a) accidental and intentional break-ups which produce long-lasting debris and (b) debris released intentionally during the operation of launch vehicle orbital stages and...

Since the launch of Sputnik-I in 1957, the amount of space debris in Earth's orbit has increased continuously. Historically, the primary sources of space debris in Earth's orbit were (i) accidental and intentional break-ups which produce long-lasting debris and (ii) debris released intentionally during the operation of launch vehicle orbital stages...

The goal of the Draper Semi-analytical Satellite Theory (DSST) Standalone Orbit Propagator is to provide the same algorithms as in the GTDS orbit determination system implementation of the DSST, without GTDS’s overhead. However, this goal has not been achieved. The 1984 DSST Standalone included complete models for the mean element motion but trunca...
