Abstract : The instantaneous thrust-direction for a spacecraft to perform a minimum-time rendezvous with another (nonmaneuvering) spacecraft is determined as a function of instantaneous relative velocity and position. The magnitude of the thrust acceleration is assumed constant and the acceleration due to external forces is neglected.
