9789048144532: Handbook of Geostationary Orbits (Space Technology Library)

This Handbook 0/ Geostationary Orbits is in principle an extension of the Introduction to Geostationary Orbits that was printed as a special publica­ tion by the European Space Agency (ESA) in 1983. The immediate purpose was to provide the theoretical background and some practical advice for the orbit control of geostationary spacecraft by means of the software package "PEPSOC". PEPSOC, short for "Portable ESOC Package for Synchronous Orbit Con­ trol" , was produced by the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) to support spacecraft operations in the routine phase. The resulting publication was a handbook for engineers and spacecraft operators, rather than a clas­ sical textbook in celestial mechanics. During the past eleven years, the software system PEPSOC has found a wide application both within and outside the ESA member states. At the same time, the original Introduction found numerous readers also outside the group of PEPSOC operators. The continuing development and the in­ creasing use of the geostationary orbit has now created the need for a new, more detailed publication to include new aspects that have emerged. The present Handbook contains several additional subjects and more math­ ematics to describe the methods applied in PEPSOC. The geophysical and astronomical parameters have been updated to reflect the latest recom­ mended values. This results in small deviations of the numerical data compared to the Introduction.

Product Description:

The Handbook of Geostationary Orbits is based on sixteen years' experience in controlling the orbits of about fifteen geostationary satellites. It provides the necessary theoretical and practical background for engineers and spacecraft operators, but it can also be used as an introductory textbook in space courses at high school or university. The contents include: Fundamental definitions of orbits and coordinate systems; legal aspects; elliptic and perturbed orbits; in-orbit control; single and multiple in-plane manoeuvres; longitude and eccentricity station keeping; longitude shift and reacquisition; re-orbiting of old spacecraft; inclination manoeuvres; passive and active inclination station keeping; long-term inclination strategy; operational practice; eclipses by Earth and Moon; co-location; separation methods; proximity manoeuvres; orbit determination; estimation process; tracking accuracy; orbit observability and accuracy.

Review:

` ... can be recommended as an introductory textbook on space courses at a high school or university, but many amateurs and teachers (provided with the basics in calculus and vectorial algebra) will find useful information about this modern subject of celestial mechanics. '
Orion, 271 (1995)
