Title: Satellite orbital control
Authors: Evans, Regina M.

Abstract: In this project we will be looking at the change in control required to transfer a satellite between two elliptic Keplerian orbits. We will first derive the equations of motion for our satellite and then study the controllability properties of our system. We will introduce a simple feedback controller and prove local asymptotic stability of the target orbit. The goal of this paper is to prove stability using both geometric control theory as well as stabilization methods and thus link prior work done on orbital control in both fields.Our primary tool to accomplish this will be LaSalle’s invariance principle.
