Two-Body Dynamics: Orbits in 3D Chapter 4

Introductions So far we have focus on the orbital mechanics of a spacecraft in 2D. In this Chapter we will now move to 3D and express orbits using all 6 orbital elements

Geocentric Equatorial Frame

Orbital Elements Classical Orbital Elements are: a = semi-major axis (or h or ε) e = eccentricity i = inclination Ω = longitude of ascending node ω = argument of periapsis θ = true anomaly

Orbital Elements

Coordinate Transformation Answers the question of “what are the parameters in another coordinate frame” Q Transformation (or direction cosine) matrix x y z x’x’ y’y’ z’z’ Q is a orthogonal transformation matrix

Coordinate Transformation Where And Where is made up of rotations about the axis {a, b, or c} by the angle {θ d, θ e, and θ f } 1 st rotation 2 nd rotation3 rd rotation

Coordinate Transformation For example the Euler angle sequence for rotation is the 3-1-3 rotation where you rotate by the angle α along the 3 rd axis (usually z-axis), then by β along the 1 st axis, and then by γ along the 3 rd axis. Thus, the angles can be found from elements of Q

Coordinate Transformation Classic Euler Sequence from xyz to x’y’z’

Coordinate Transformation For example the Yaw-Pitch-Roll sequence for rotation is the 1-2-3 rotation where you rotate by the angle α along the 3 rd axis (usually z-axis), then by β along the 2 nd axis, and then by γ along the 1 st axis. Thus, the angles can be found from elements of Q

Coordinate Transformation Yaw, Pitch, and Roll Sequence from xyz to x’y’z’

Transformation between Geocentric Equatorial and Perifocal Frame Transferring between pqw frame and xyz Transformation from geocentric equatorial to perifocal frame

Transformation between Geocentric Equatorial and Perifocal Frame Transformation from perifocal to geocentric equatorial frame is then Therefore
