Abstract : An investigation was made of the propulsion system requirements for a circular orbital plane change of a vehicle with/without auxiliary aerodynamic forces. A transfer with constant velocity along a minor circle shows thrust acceleration reduction when auxiliary serodynamic forces are not used and propellant consumption reduction when auxiliary aerodynamic forces are used.
