Title: A-B-Cs of sun-synchronous orbit mission design
Authors: Boain, Ronald J.
Keywords: sun-synchronous orbit
Issue Date: Feb-2004
Publisher: Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2004.

Abstract: The paper will develop the background and information necessary to explain what a sun-synchronous orbit is how it works. Handy back of the envelope equations will be provided to enable the mission analyst and system engineer to do quick and simple calculations for the orbit parameters selection and to compute mission parameters important to satellite design without having to resort to sophisticated computer programs.
