1 More Satellite Orbits Introduction to Space Systems and Spacecraft Design Space Systems Design

2 More Orbits 2 Importance of Orbits to Mission When should you start analyzing orbits to satisfy mission requirements? Can the orbit effect any of the following in the mission design? ― Revisit time of satellite to a point on earth? ― Amount of data that can be transferred between the satellite and ground? ― Space radiation environment? ― Power generation for the satellite? ― Thermal control on the satellite? ― Launch costs? Introduction to Space Systems and Spacecraft Design Space Systems Design

27 27 Earth non-spherical effect Orbits Perturbations More Orbits Introduction to Space Systems and Spacecraft Design Space Systems Design Due to luni-solar perturbations and the ellipticity of the Earth equator, an object placed in a GEO without any station- keeping would not stay there. It would start building up inclination at an initial rate of about 0.85 degrees per year. After 26.5 years the object would have an inclination of 15 degrees, decreasing back to zero after another 26.5 yearsEarthinclination
