METHOD OF INCREASING THE ACCURACY OF ALIGNMENT OF RADAR STATIONS VIA LOW-ORBITING SPACECRAFTS
Contains description of the method of constructing a «reference trajectory» required to check the extent of error of coordinate measurements of the radar station (RLS), and determine the need for further conducting the ad-justment works. As objects of measurement uses low-orbit space spacecrafts, equipped with navigation equip-ment consumers (NAP) of Global navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) GLONASS/GPS, to transmit NAP on to ground receiving stations via telemetric radio channel. Improving the accuracy of construction of the reference orbit, relative to which the alignment of the radar, by a posteriori processing complex aggregate of information transmitted by radio to the receiving point information (PPI) of ground automated control complex (GACC). There are given recommendations for the selection and verification of low-orbit spacecraft which can be used as ob-jects, that can providing a radar reference data with a target level of accuracy.
