Earth albedo is the sunlight reflected off the Earth's surface. The Earth albedo induces power in solar cells on spacecrafts just like direct sunlight. The Earth Albedo Toolbox may be used to calculate the amount of Earth albedo arriving at an object in space, maintaining information of direction of the Earth albedo, useful for objects in low Earth-orbit. The Earth Abledo model is useful for investigating excess energy produces by solar panels, and for improving vector observations by Sun sensors. A Simulink interface is provided with toolbox.
