Total delay rates of the SRT obtained from baseline-based fringe fitting of the correlated data on the baseline to Effelsberg and accounting for the clock rates at each of the two telescopes. For each SRT observing segment, the rates are obtained from fringe fitting solutions with a time interval of 10 min. The rates are plotted separately for each IF and polarization channels. The plot reflects the accuracy of the velocity determination in the reconstructed orbit of the SRT. All of the velocity and acceleration values correspond to the baseline projections of the true residual offset, velocity, and acceleration of the spacecraft.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
