The equations of motion of a satellite have been derived in a local vertical coordinate system. The method of derivation and the form of the equations provide a simplified means of visualizing and planning the maneuvering within multiple satellite constellations. The equations are also useful in station keeping, rendezvous, and collision avoidance considerations. Author
