Abstract: This paper is concerned with an orbit prediction using one of the best regular theories (KS-regularized variables). Perturbations due to the Earth’s gravitational field with axial symmetry up to the fourth order zonal harmonic, atmospheric drag (variation in density model with height) and solar radiation pressure are considered. Applications of the problem with a comparison between the perturbations effect will be illustrated by numerical and graphical example.
