Table 2 Distance between the significant levels of the range residual distribution (Figure 5 ) and Ajisai center of mass

From: A method to calculate zero-signature satellite laser ranging normal points for millimeter geodesy - a case study with Ajisai

  Physical distance to CoM [mm] Optical distance to CoM [mm] RMS [mm]
Minimum deviation MD 1,052 1,027 0.4
NPLE (meanLE level on Figure 5) 1,048 1,023 1.7
Peak 1,041 1,016 2.6
NPS (after 2.5 sigma clipping) (Mean level on Figure 5) 1,037 1,012 4.7
  1. The physical distance between the outer surface of the CCRs and the satellite’s center of mass is 1,053 ± 5 mm.
