Workshop 2017 - Bingfeng Tan - Precise Orbit Determination for the New-Generation (BeiDou-3) experimental Satellites are the foundation to expand its application and play an important role in complementing other GNSS. In this project, observations from the International GNSS Monitoring and Assessment Service (iGMAS) in China from 16 July to 14 August 2016 are processed for orbit determination of four BeiDou-3 experimental satellites. Internal consistency and SLR validations both report that the orbit radial- component can reach accuracy on the level of 1 decimeter and 4 decimeters for BeiDou-3 IGSO and MEO under that situation, respectively.
