The article explores methods for testing Finsler gravity theories. A satellite with an on-board atomic clock, orbiting in the Finslerian-perturbed gravitational ﬁeld of the earth, is considered, whose time signal is transmitted to a ground station. There its receive time and frequency are measured with respect to another atomic clock; a conﬁguration that is realized by the Galileo 5 and 6 satellites that have gone astray and are now on non-circular orbits. One of the main ﬁndings, obtained by numerical integration of the satellite’s orbit, followed by an iterative procedure which provides the numerically integrated signals from the satellite to the ground station, is that, for sufficiently eccentric orbits, Finslerian effects can be separated from the effects of perturbations of the Schwarzschild spacetime within the Lorentzian geometry.
