  • The considerable surge in satellite constellations has brought to the fore the imperative need for an efficient satellite constellation management plan. [...] Key Method The main replacement strategies investigated are based on in-orbit spares, spare satellites in parking orbits and spare satellites on the ground. Finally, end-of-life policies for LEO, MEO and GEO satellites are presented. As such, the analysis accomplished encompasses most of the fundamental phases of constellation life cycle. A representative…Expand Abstract
