Necessary and sufficient conditions for optimal impulsive rendezvous with linear equations of motion. (English) Zbl 0980.93058

This paper concerns the impulsive minimization of the total characteristic velocity of a spacecraft subject to linear equations of motions. The purpose of this paper is to present new localized necessary and sufficient conditions for the fixed-time problem that are derived from necessary ones, but require information about the primer vector only at a few specific points.
