A Novel Algorithm for Multiple Space Vehicles Positioning
The paper presents a novel algorithm for multiple space vehicles positioning. The algorithm first positions the ground stations using multiple space vehicles with initial coordinates, then calculates the differences of the ground stations position results and their real coordinates, at last uses the differences to estimate the revised error for space vehicles’ coordinates. It can use iterative method to achieve needed precision of the SV’s coordinates. At last, simulation results prove the stability and credibility of the algorithm in space vehicles positioning.
