[J T Findlay; G M Kelly; Patrick M Troutman; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]   The Atmospheric Neutral Density Experiment (ANDE) is a low cost mission proposed by the Naval Research Laboratory to demonstrate a method to monitor the thermospheric neutral density at an altitude of km. The primary mission objective is to provide total neutral density along the orbit for improved orbit determination of resident space ://

  Space Station and shuttle. Using the technique mentioned above, atmospheric density can be computed to estimate atmospheric drag experienced by manned platforms and by that require collision avoidance maneuvers. By combining the improved precision orbit determination mentioned in item (2) with an improved Atmospheric density determination has thus become an important topic for researchers. Based on the relationship between the atmospheric drag force and the decay of the semi-major axis of the orbit, we derived atmospheric density along the trajectory of challenging mini-satellite payload (CHAMP) satellite with its rapid science orbit (RSO) ?slug. where m is the mass, c D is the drag coefficient, ρ is the atmospheric density, v ˆ is a unit vector lying along the velocity vector relative to the atmosphere and v is the magnitude of the velocity relative to the atmosphere, shows that the acceleration due to aerodynamic drag, a drag, is directly related to the cross-sectional area of the satellite A, which is determined by the attitude of   The number density of air is in turn related to the atmospheric pressure P by the ideal gas law. Consider a volume V of atmosphere at pressure P and temperature T containing N moles of air. The ideal gas law gives () where R = J mol-1 K-1 is the gas constant. The number density of air is related to N and V by ()
