The Delta-Rho perturbation technique is developed in a form applicable to both general dynamical and astrodynamical trajectories. It is subsequently verified for a specific astrodynamic example. It can be described as an extension of Encke's perturbation method. Like Encke it uses analytically determined trajectories, but unlike Encke it requires the definition and storage of a reference trajectory. If the reference trajectory includes all of the important perturbing forces to be considered… CONTINUE READING
