AbstractThe problem is considered of the zone definition where the launch vehicle’s element should separate to fall into the assigned ground area. The problem is shown to be ill-defined, and a set of the solutions exists. The approach is suggested allowing determining the separation zone securing the separated element falling into the assigned ground area under the atmosphere and wind parameters variation at minimal decrease of the spacecraft injection accuracy.
