Nominal QZSS Constellation?
« on: 02/06/2015 04:28 pm »
Are the nominal orbit parameters of the future 3-satellite QZSS constellation available? A table of the nominal Keplerian elements for all three satellites (as we have for the full Galileo constellation) would be helpful. Thanks.

Maybe not quite what you are looking for since it is a little dated, but nominal orbital parameters for QZS-1 to QZS-7 (the QZSS satellites) are given in this 2009 paper from the Proceedings of 2009 International Symposium on GPS/GNSS, Jeju, Korea.  See Table 1 and Figure 1 for details.

Gets a mention in this article with talk of integration into the GPS system.
