Use of Programs for Two-Parameter Multiple Impulse Correction of Altitude and Inclination of Circular Orbits

  • A. E. NazarovEmail author


The paper describes the method for the development of programs for two-parameter multiple impulse correction of altitude and inclination of circular orbits. The considered corrections feature the simultaneous adjustment of altitude and inclination of the orbit under limited thrust of the propulsion system of the spacecraft. Low thrust-to-weight ratio of the spacecraft leads to the need for a correction program consisting of several burns of the propulsion system. Thrust vector orientation, burn time, and its operation duration are determined as propulsion system parameters.
