Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 127)


The paper deals with a method worked out in the Central Laboratory for Geodesy at Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and aimed at a high accuracy forecast of the artificial Earth’s satellites (AES) motion during an interval of several days, especially in the case of solving geodetic problems. The problem is solved on the basis of the generalized method of two fixed centres (Aksenov, 1977).
