In the present thesis, the nonlinear attitude motion of a satellite consisting of a single rigid body, or of two rigid bodies in gyrostat configuration, in a central gravitational field, on a circular or an elliptic orbit, is studied with particular attention given to the understanding of long-time dynamic behavior for a wide range of parameters. 1. An artiﬁcial satellite circles Earth in a circular orbit at a location where the acceleration due to gravity is m/s2. a) What is the orbital period of the satellite? First, we compute r from a = GM=r2. We ﬁnd r = √ GM=a. It is also possible to compute v from v2=r = a, which gives v = √ ar = (GMa)1=4. Now we can compute T from v File Size: 17KB.

This is implied in the assumption that the center of mass moves in a given orbit; this assumption is referred to as orbital. constraints.

The study of orbits in the three body problem only makes up half of a spacecraft’s dynamics; the attitude motion is certainly important as well.

The vehicle considered consists of a body with no special symmetries that has any number of rotors attached to by: system fixed in Earth. However the environmental forces and torques acting on the satellite affect the attitude and the orbit of the satellite.

The rotational motion is described by the Euler’s dynamic equations, which depend on the external torques. Then it is essential to study the influence of the torques in the satellite mission.

In this paper, we consider a gyrostat satellite in circular orbit around a planet, with spherical symmetry in a case, and axial symmetry in another. We establish the equations of the rotational motion of the gyrostat satellite and use the gravitational torque obtained by Maciejeweski [8] when truncating the gravity field in the level of the harmonic by: 3.

Equation (29) is the linear discrete equation for perturbations of the attitude dynamics of a spacecraft in a circular orbit, expressed in terms of R3 ≃ so(3).

Stability of circular orbits r0 r0 stable unstable The stability of circular orbits depends on whether the orbit is at the local minimum or maximum of u. When it is at the minimum, small displacements give rise to simple harmonic oscillations around the stable orbit.
