Minimize GOCE Mass Property File

The GOCE Mass property file contains data describing the evolution of the GOCE mass properties due to Xenon and Nitrogen propellant consumption since launch, such as:

  • Position of the 'Centre of Mass in the Satellite Physical Coordinate Frame'
  • Satellite mass, remaining masses of Xe and N2 propellants
  • Six moments/products of inertia

Data are particularly useful for precise orbit computations.

The file is updated approximately once a month (last updated 11 November 2013).
