HartRAO/NRF


  • Gamma estimated as a solve-for parameter in least-squares sense

  • RMS of O-C used as criteria for filter to reduce effect of mismodelling

  • SLR strength is 2-way range, and GR radial acceleration is mostly radial

  • Results preliminary, longer time span, combination of LAGEOS/LAGEOS II and evaluation of different gravity models to follow, effects of modelling improvement should be apparent in errors
