Aero Assist Profession​al Development Seminar Series: Orbit Determination Toolbox

Aero Assist will be sponsoring a seminar on the Orbit Determination Toolbox (ODTBX). The ODTBX is an analysis toolset based on the integration of MATLAB and existing astrodynamics software developed by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Navigation and Mission Design Branch. It provides a flexible architecture for early mission analysis by facilitating the implementation of new measurement and dynamic models from a library of base classes. A Java Astrodynamics Toolbox is used as an engine for things that might be slow or inefficient in MATLAB, like high-fidelity trajectory propagation, lunar and planetary ephemeris lookups, precession, nutation, polar motion calculations etc. The primary analysis functions are sequential filter/smoother and batch least-squares commands that incorporate monte-carlo data simulation, linear covariance analysis, measurement processing, and plotting capabilities at the generic level. These functions have a user interface that is based on that of the MATLAB ODE suite.
