Sebastian Strasser is a Ph.D. candidate at the Institute of Geodesy of Graz University of Technology in Austria. His research focuses on the processing of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) constellations and global station networks. The resulting high-precision data products, for example satellite orbits or station position time series, play a key role in many fields of geoscientific research.
The presented work compared and generalized various satellite attitude models. An accurate modeling of a satellite’s orientation in space is an important factor in achieving the highest possible quality of GNSS products. The aim of the work was to provide an overview of the available models and easy ways to implement the often complex models into analysis software.
