Abstract:

SAMSO sponsored the development of SPARS for application in low altitude orbits. The High Altitude Attitude Reference Study was carried out to evaluate the applicability of SPARS in highly elliptical and high altitude up to synchronous orbits. The specific objectives of the study were to 1 Identify causes of performance degradation in the high altitude application. 2 Evaluate SPARS performance in highly elliptical and high altitude orbits. 3 Determine the effect of key design parameters of SPARS high altitude performance.
