In this paper, a new approach for orbital position prediction of satellites, is introduced. As traditional methods are based on keplerian equations of motion, orbital disturbances are uasualy neglected for simplicity. This paper, suggests artificial intelligent time series peridiction methods for orbital position prediction of satellites. The advantage of this method is based on usage of actual data, so all disturbances are taken into account. For this reason use of TLE as the most reachable actual data is considered. Compariosion of output of this method with actual data, proofs the accuracy of proposed method.
