Due to recent improvements in the quality of DORIS and GNSS observations, the achievable quality in real-time orbit determination has improved drastically, achieving radial position accuracies down to 3 cm. The limited amount of computational power available in real-time scenarios results in a need for more computationally efficient yet still...

Understanding the role of ocean swell, monitoring and modelling it is critical for a diverse range of oceanographic research, coastal management initiatives and for better weather forecasting and climate modelling. <br/>Currently, swell measurements are obtained through in-situ measurements, wave models, and satellite measurements. So far, swell...

To answer the question of habitability of other planets, it is crucial to find liquid water. As a planet’s surface might be difficult to characterise through observations, the observation of cloud composition and coverage could possibly reveal the presence of large bodies of surface water. Climate code SPEEDY is used to investigate relations...

My research investigates the (initial) orbit determination (IOD) problem for short-arc angle-only optical observations of satellites. The method is an adaptation of the Constrained Admissible Region Multiple Hypothesis Filter (CAR-MHF) method, as developed by DeMars et al. This adapted method is tested on data obtained from telescopes, where...

The future space environment is predicted to grow in number of both operational and inactive man-made objects and the era of constellations is expected to arrive during the following years, with many telecom companies launching constellations of up to 12000 satellites. This situation will inevitably lead to over-population of the most demanded...

Accurately tracking the trajectory of launching vehicles during the boost phase is crucial for a variety of reasons. First, an accurate burnout point location and  velocity of the launch vehicle will facilitate the estimation of its trajectory during the following phases of ballistic flight and the impact location. This has important...

CryoSat-2 is a European Space Agency (ESA) altimeter mission with an objective to study the connection between cryosphere melting and global sea level rise. The satellite carries a Doppler navigation system (DORIS) and a Satellite Laser Ranging system (SLR) to aid the precise computation of orbits down to centimetre level.<br/>CNES/IDS releases...

Cryosat-2 altimetry helps to assess the state of the Cryosphere by measuring elevation and elevation change. The SARIn mode of the Cryosat-2 SIRAL instrument is specifically designed for rough topography that we encounter near ice sheet margins. Various SARIn data products (Full Bit Rate (FBR), Level 1b and Level 2) are provided by ESA, where...

The Equivalence Principle is today challenged by some theories attempting to unify General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. The MICROSCOPE mission thus intents to confirm or overturn this principle by testing the universality of free fall in space with an unrivaled precision objective of 10^-15. The principle of the test relies on the precise...

The military use of space brings interesting challenges for both technology and operational aspects. The Netherlands armed forces are a small player within the military world. However, in 2013 the beginning of a space program was started by the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF). One of the key mission statements<br/>stated: “show the military...
