The high number of objects in the LEO is a risk that collisions between sub-orbital or escape velocity objects with an orbiting object of satellites occur when two satellites collide while orbiting the earth. One of the approaches to avoid collisions is a robotic configuration of satellite constellations. Satellite constellations should not be confused with satellite clusters, which are groups of satellites moving in close proximity to each other in nearly identical orbits; nor with satellite…

Satellite constellations having rosette (flowerlike) orbital patterns are described which exhibit better worldwide coverage properties thanconstellations previously reported in U.S. literature and offer a promising alternative to the use of geostationary satellites.
