Vallado and Carter showed that highly accurate orbit determination
is possible with dense observation data for 120 s (a few hundred observations per satellite pass) .
In the orbit determination
, especially with the kind and quantity of modern data, statistics play an important role nowadays .

Our interest is to understand how sensitive the orbit determination
is to the ocean tides and how precisely the ocean tides should be modeled.
Each least squares orbit determination
run was initialized using the JSpOC TLE, and each came to a convergence with close resemblance to the TLE.
by genetic algoripm and application to GEO observation.
TerraSAR-X precise orbit determination
with real-time GPS ephemerides.
A modellization piece that is often used in precise orbit determination
is given by the socalled empirical accelerations.
