Implementation of VLBI Near-Field Delay Models in the c5++ Analysis Software
Conference contribution, 2017

We describe the implementation of two near-field delay models in the c5++ analysis software. The motivation for this work is to allow the calculation of a priori delay information for the correlation of VLBI raw observations of near-field targets and to prepare for the analysis of VLBI data of near-field objects. The software is tested by correlating VLBI observations of the Chinese Chang’E lunar lander on the Onsala– Wettzell baseline.
