The European Space Agency Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circular Explorer (GOCE) carries a gradiometer consisting of three pairs of accelerometers in an orthogonal triad. Precise GOCE science orbit solutions (PSO), which are based on satellite-to-satellite tracking observations by the Global Positioning System and which are claimed to be...

The first ESA (European Space Agency) Earth explorer core mission GOCE (Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer) was launched on 17 March 2009 into a sun-synchronous dusk–dawn orbit with an exceptionally low initial altitude of about 280 km. The onboard 12-channel dual-frequency GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver delivers...

The state-of-the-art GOCE Satellite-to-Satellite Tracking Instrument (SSTI) delivers high-quality GPS data with an almost continuous 1 Hz data rate, which allows for very Precise Orbit Determination (POD). Despite this good performance, the GPS receiver shows occasional unexpected L2 tracking losses, which mainly occur close to the geomagnetic...
