- A simulation of the proposed low Gravsat and high Geopause satellite mission is presented. This mission promises fundamental improvements in the accuracy of low order geopotential coefficients by using satellite-to-satellite tracking technology coupled with a global sampling of the gravity field. Ten days of data from six stations are assumed. A drag compensation system for the low satellite is also postulated. The results show a one to two order of magnitude improvement in the accuracy of the low order coefficients through degree 8 and order 6. These results are easily adjusted to reflect a different data accuracy level and low satellite altitude.
