Bi-impulsive control to build a satellite constellation. (English) Zbl 1128.70015

The author considers an algorithm of optimal two-impulse transfer of a satellite from a parking orbit to a fixed position in a final orbit. Then, using planar and non-planar maneuvers, some test problems are solved. The times consumed for the transfer are shown in 5 figures. Finally, the author examines a maneuver of the changes of angular position of satellite keeping all Keplerian elements.
