Interorbital and local maneuvers of space vehicles
Abstract
Methods for optimizing multistep maneuvers and the use of the qualitative theory of dynamic systems and bifurcation theory for studying the trajectories of maneuverable space vehicles are discussed. A classification of maneuvers is presented, and mathematical models of motion are examined, along with the principal characteristics of certain interorbital and local maneuvers. Particular attention is given to lowthrust interorbital maneuvers, local maneuvers with a constant angular velocity of the line of sight, and local maneuvers with lineofsight orientation of the control acceleration.
