Abstract:

Equations are derived which relate errors in vehicle performance parameters and guidance components to the trajectory variation at final-stage cutoff. Expressions are included for the propagation coefficients of the orbit parameters during the parking orbit. These coefficients relate errors in first-burn cutoff conditions to second-burn ignition conditions. A degree of generality is achieved by considering both a two-stage and a three-stage configuration. Author
