Abstract:

This paper analyzes the capability of low orbit satellite borne interception devices to carry out orbital maneuvers to intercept high orbit satellites. In interception system analysis, threat areas, defense areas, and intercept areas are three basic concepts. This article gives methods for their modeling as well as solution. In conjunction with this, use is made of digital simulation, giving standard threat areas, defense areas, and intercept areas corresponding to different intercept time periods.
