Optimum Trajectories with Specified Transfer Angle
Keywords: Earth's gravitational field, Transfer operation, Inter orbital optimum
AbstractInter-orbital optimum trajectories with specified transfer angle in an inverse square gravitational field have been analysed. Criterion of optimization adopted is minimum velocity increment in the entire transfer operation with one impulse each at the initial and final terminal. Particular cases of the above problem are discussed and as a numerical illustration, results are obtained for transfer trajectories between two orbits in Earth's gravitational field.
