Advanced Probabilistic Methods for Robust Orbit Determination and Collision Risk Assessment


Joaquín Míguez Arenas (UC3M) & Manuel Sanjurjo Rivo (UC3M)


The aim of this thesis is to devise new methods to preserve orbital safety and improve services in the domain of space traffic management. This is done by using state-of-the-art probabilistic techniques and alternative geometric analysis in order to:

– Track space objects by accurately characterizing their uncertainty.

– Compute the probability of collision, treating collisions as extremely rare events.
