Dynamic modeling of a LEO satellite's motion requires precise computation of atmospheric density for drag effect modeling. Here, Jacchia-Bowman 2006 and 2008 atmospheric models are used to calculate the total mass-desnity of atmosphere. Position of the Sun is computed by JPL Ephemerides (DE440) to improve accuracy of the model.
