AbstractIn activity the problem of maintenance of ecological cleanness of geostationary orbit (GSO) is considered at the expense of application of reusable salvaged geostationary accelerating units. The problem of designing of ecological pure accelerating units which are not polluting working orbits is put. At the solution of a problem is determined:
- ways of returning booster and optimum parameters of a system of returning;
- degree of an economic efficiency salvaged boosters;
- change of the characteristics of units at introduction to their structure of systems of saving. For lowering costs of speed, it is offered to use known idea of parabolic transition offered A. Shternfeld, which now has found a use at the ascent of freight on GSO from northern latitudes. The use of reusable booster units in geostationary orbits is economically profitable, cutting in half the expenses. It should be compulsory with regard to the requirements of the ecological purity of geostationary orbits.
