1 NP Release Flag Conflict Toshimichi Otsubo Kashima Space Research Center National Institute of Information and Communications Technology ILRS Fall 2005 Workshop, 4 Oct 2005

2 Everyone makes mistakes, so... ILRS Normal Point: Data Record, Column 48 A flag to indicate the data release 0: first release of data 1: first replacement release of the data, 2: second replacement release, etc. It helps to keep the data set consistent at all ACs/AACs

3 Recent conflict passes [1] YY DAY HR SITE WLEN SAT

4 Recent conflict passes [2]

5 Recent conflict passes [3]

6 Wettzell case: acceptable for all ACs? (Block A) (Block B) Shouldn’t be 1 NP block = 1 pass? We have modified the data collecting software to adapt this at NICT, but not sure for other analysis centres. Flag = “0” pass NP bin Legal or otherwise, this is confusing e.g. with: Flag = “0” Flag should be “1”, but sometimes “0”

7 Various SLR Outliers Detected in Daily Multi-Satellite Analysis Toshimichi Otsubo Kashima Space Research Center National Institute of Information and Communications Technology ILRS Fall 2005 Workshop, 4 Oct 2005

8 Upgraded QC analysis at NICT More frequent! –Daily analysis (used to be weekly) –Daily webpage updates, AIUB; weekly SLReport. More satellites! –16 Sats at maximum. Typ. 11 to 14. More accurate! –‘concerto v4’ –IERS Conventions 2003 compatible

24 (c) Wrong sat? Wrong date?

25 (d) Unexplainable

26 Discussions (a) Spikes 1-return NP: Handle with care (how did NASA overcame this?) Don’t jump to a conclusion that all 1-return NPs should be rejected. Reconsider the fitting function? (b) Constant RB/TB Some stations tend to repeat this. Needs self QC? (c) Wrong Sat, Wrong Date/Time and LeapSec Wrong year: seen in January. Leap Second on 1 Jan 2006! (d) Unexplainable??? Much improvement, compared to 90’s. Little harm to analysts, for densely tracked satellites. Hidden 3 cm error is more guilty than 3 m error.
