Ground-Based Doppler Orbitography by Radiopositioning Integrated on Satellite (DORIS) Station Position Product for Precise Orbit Determination from NASA CDDIS

Doppler Orbitography by Radiopositioning Integrated on Satellite (DORIS) Station Position Product for Precise Orbit Determination from the NASA Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS). DORIS is a dual-frequency Doppler system consisting of a receiver flying aboard a satellite and a globally distributed network of ground beacons. The DORIS receiver on-board the orbiting satellite tracks the dual-frequency radio signals transmitted by the network of ground beacons and generates the DORIS data. A measurement is made of either the Doppler shift or absolute phase as the satellite’s orbit moves over the ground-based beacon. DORIS data records contain a time-tagged range-rate measurement with associated ancillary information. DORIS observations from a global network can be utilized for a variety of products. Analysis Centers (ACs) of the International DORIS Service (IDS) retrieve DORIS data on a regular basis to compute station position solutions for the DORIS beacons supporting the IDS network. The IDS Analysis Center Coordinator combines these solutions to produce an official IDS product. This DPOD (DORIS extension of the ITRF for Precise Orbit Determination) solution is a set of coordinates and velocities of all the DORIS tracking stations for Precise Orbit Determination (POD) applications. The combined solution is generated in conjunction with official determination of the International Terrestrial Reference Frame. DPOD solutions are available in SINEX format.
