Abstract:

It is shown that the optimum transfer from one orbit to another can be accomplished only when the two orbits are coplanar. For two coplanar intersecting orbits the procedure of finding the optimum orientation of one orbit relative to the other is discussed. Numerical results are tabulated for various orbital geometries.
