Title: The determination of the Hermean gravity and topography from radio science and laser altimeter data of the mission BepiColombo
Tutor: Iess, Luciano
Keywords: BepiColombo
radio science experiment
laser altimetric crossovers
orbit determination
Issue Date: 26-Nov-2013
Description: The thesis is about the use of laser altimetric crossover observables in the orbit determination process, in the frame of the BepiColombo radio science experiment. Numerical simulations have been carried out with the JPL’s orbit determination program (ODP), in order to evaluate the crossover contribution in the trajectory reconstruction when accurate radio measurements are provided, and to device the best strategy to retrieve Mercury’s gravity field and topography. The software used was the JPL’s ODP, exploiting a batch sequential filter.
