Nozomi is the first Japanese spacecraft to explore the planet Mars. It was launched in July, 1998, and put into interplanetary trajectory by multiple lunar gravity assists and a powered Earth swing-by. This paper describes the analysis of orbit determination in each phase of Nozomi trajectory. Non-conservative force which is caused by solar radiation pressure and unexpected small maneuvers at reorientations has a significant influence on orbit determination for Nozomi. We improved the modeling of the non-conservative force. The accuracy of orbit determination is 1km in position and 1 cm/s in velocity in well determined period for cislunar orbit.
