In this paper, we briefly describe the Argus spectrometer and its mission. We then focus on the process to determine the geolocation of the spectrometer's flight data. For the Canadian Advanced Nanospace eXperiment 2 (CanX-2) Argus flight, we have used Simplified General Perturbations 4 (SGP4) propagation for position determination. Two sets of flight data are presented as examples. We estimate the uncertainty in the geolocation of Argus data using this method and investigate potential improvements for future Argus flights.
