Pardini C., Tobiska W. K., Anselmo L. Pilot Service for Improving Satellite Re-entry Predictions and Orbital Decay Modeling. In: ESA Space Weather Workshop: Space Weather Applications Pilot Project (ESA/ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, 16-18 December 2002). Proceedings, vol. Website pp. 1 - 6. Alexis Glover (ed.).

This paper briefly describes the content of the proposal submitted by ISTI, an Institute of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), in response to the ESA/ESTEC AO/1-4246/02/NL/LvH on Pilot Project for Space Weather Applications. The principal aim of the envisaged work is to study, test and evaluate a space weather service to improve the satellite orbital decay modeling and the accuracy of re-entry predictions. The limitations of the currently used atmospheric density models and solar flux proxies will be investigated in quantitative detail and compared with the potential advantages of using a new temperature equation in the Jacchia-Roberts 1971 model and the E10.7 parameter, from the SOLAR2000 project, to represent the solar flux.
