Abstract:

A method and a computer program is described which performs the recovery of gravitational coefficients and station coordinates through the technique of sequential estimation as opposed to the batch least squares process. It is believed that this is the first attempt of determining geodetic parameters from perturbations of earth satellites through a Kalman-type recursive technique. Author
