Abstract : This report documents the computational algorithms of the SHADO routine for computing the particle wake behind large spacecraft in low polar orbit. SHADO will replace the existing module for computing particle densities in the POLAR code and achieves a significant improvement in computational speed. Keywords: Spacecraft charging; Particle wake; POLAR computer code three dimensional.
