Methods of Calculating Maneuver Parameters for Rendezvous with Orbital Station
The work describes algorithms for minimization in the spaces of impulse components and angles of impulse applications. It is shown that there is a possibility of reducing considerably the time of searching optimal solutions making use of some specific physical characteristics of the task. The described graphical interaction with the task ensures that advantages of numerical and analytical methods are put together. The given iterative procedure shows how to obtain solution with the required accuracies taking in to account all main perturbations. Solutions of four, three and two impulse tasks are given as examples.
