I am trying to obtain the orbit residuals after a BLS estimation of a GEO orbit starting from AngularRaDec measurements.
I obtain the residuals as follows:
I understand that these values do not have a physical dimension. I am confused regarding the following points:
- How can i find the defined scaling factor of the determination to apply to the normalized_residuals?
- What is the unit of measure of the scaling factor?
- If I determine the orbit with RaDec measurements, do the residuals have the same unit of measure or are they given as meters (after the multiplication with the scaling factor)?
- Is there a faster way to obtain the physical residuals?
Thank you in advance
