Abstract

This paper presents the architecture design of flight dynamics system (FDS) known as “EMERALD” developed by Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (GISTDA) and Mahanakorn University of Technology (MUT). The capability of the system enables to provide the state vector of a satellite, mission analysis, orbit events and mission monitoring. The methodologies of orbit determination and event prediction modules implemented for mission management are presented and the validations of both are done by comparing with the previous FDS (Quartz) developed by EADS ASTRIUM. As a result of the implementation, the reduction of the operation time is significant and the prediction performance is high accurate and reliable when comparing with Quartz.
