Note c^2(area of future horizon)^-1/2 ~ 10^17/10^26 ~ 10^-9 meters/sec^2

Hence their conclusion below is puzzling in my opinion.

"Attempts to estimate the influence of global cosmological expansion on local systems are reviewed. Here “local” is taken to mean that the sizes of the considered systems are much smaller than cosmologically relevant scales. For example, such influences can affect orbital motions as well as configurations of compact objects, like black holes. Also discussed are how measurements based on the exchange of electromagnetic signals of distances, velocities, etc. of moving objects are influenced. As an application, orders of magnitude of such effects are compared with the scale set by the apparently anomalous acceleration of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecrafts, which is 10^−9 m/s2. There is no reason to believe that the latter is of cosmological origin. However, the general problem of gaining a qualitative and quantitative understanding of how the cosmological dynamics influences local systems remains challenging, with only partial clues being so far provided by exact solutions to the field equations of general relativity."

This paper is not easy reading, but goes into the nitty gritty details on the complex kinematics of how to relate the abstract formalism of GR to real life NASA radar, Doppler measurements.


"VII. SUMMARY AND OUTLOOK
We think it is fair to say that there are no theoretical
hints that point towards a dynamical influence of cosmological
expansion comparable in size to, say, that of the
anomalous acceleration of the Pioneer spacecrafts.
There seems to be no controversy over this point,
though for completeness it should be mentioned that
there exist speculations Palle, 2005 according to which
it might become relevant for future missions. But such
speculations are often based on models which are not
easily related to the intended physical situation, like that
of Gautreau 1984. Rather, as the a¨ /a-improved Newtonian
analysis in Sec. III together with its justification
given in the subsequent sections shows, there is no genuine
relativistic effect coming from cosmological expansion
at the levels of precision envisaged here.

On the other hand, as regards kinematical effects, the
situation is less unanimous. It is important to unambiguously
understand what is meant by “mapping out a trajectory,”
i.e., how to assign “times” and “distances.”

Eventually we compare a functional relation between
distance and time with observed data. That relation is
obtained by solving some equations of motion and it has
to be carefully checked whether the methods by which
the tracking data are obtained match the interpretation
of the coordinates in which the analytical problem is
solved. In our way of speaking, dynamical effects really
influence the worldline of the object in question whereas
kinematical effects change the way in which one and the
same worldline is mapped out from another worldline
representing the observer. Here we have derived exact
results concerning the influence of cosmic expansion on
this mapping procedure, which allow one to reliably estimate
upper bounds on their magnitude. They turn out
to be too small to be of any relevance in current satellite
trackings, which is in accord with naive expectation but
in contrast to some statements found in the literature."
