The present paper has the goal of developing a new criterion to search for orbits that minimize the fuel consumption for stationkeeping maneuvers. This approach is based on the integral over the time of the perturbing forces. This integral measures the total variation of velocity caused by the perturbations in the spacecraft, which corresponds to the equivalent variation of velocity that an engine should deliver to the spacecraft to compensate the perturbations and to keep its orbit Keplerian… CONTINUE READING
