ABSTRACT

This study is mainly targeted to performing numerical simulations of a radio science experiment (RSE) with AIM, focused at its precise orbit determination within the Didymos system, providing an assessment of the accuracies achievable in the estimation of the scientific parameters of interest, like the heliocentric orbit of the system, the masses and the extended gravity fields of Didymos and Didymoon, and their rotational states.
