Title

Satellite Analysis of Iridium NEXT

Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) Satellites are the closest to Earth orbiting category of satellites, with an altitude no higher than 1000km, and they are commonly used for communication and remote sensing satellites systems, such as the Iridium system that orbits at about 780km altitude, for Earth observation and imaging, for providing Internet service, and more. It is to note that the International Space Station (ISS) orbits at about 400km altitude and the Hubble Space telescope orbits at about 540km altitude, among the most famous LEO satellites. This research focuses on orbital calculations for the LEO satellites, with data specific to the Iridium Next constellation.
