The research will in particular focus on scientific experiments with planetary exploration missions in the solar system,through precision orbit determination. In particular, the following activities are foreseen:Detailed study of the space missions: scientific objectives, spacecraft subsystems, mission profile. Develop-ment of a detailed error budget:identification and characterization of the main error sources on radiometric and optical measurements. Analysis of all accele-rations acting on the probes and development of an highly accurate dynamical model.Pre-processing of radiometric measurements:format conversions,data calibration,quick-look analysis, computation of the Allan standard deviation and the power spectral densities.Preprocessing of optical measurements:center-finding,limb-fitting and landmark selection algorithms.
