Control of spacecraft on highly elliptical orbit in given borders on orientation factors
Space technics and technology
AbstractIn scope of survey spacecraft on highly elliptical orbit (HEO) is considering. The construction of this spacecraft determines borders on orientation factors in due to the sun location about spacecraft and to control orbits operation factors. To keep orbits operation factors in given borders it is necessary to apply calculated power pulse to spacecraft equipped with low force jet engine. Impulse direction is the main factor affecting on orbits operation factors corrections quality. Therefore spacecraft orientation should be guarantee essential correctional impulse direction. In due to orbits operation factors evolution control methods of orbital parameters are developed.
