Trajectory of Space Vehicle

In order to calculate the Trajectory of the Space Vehicle at the End of the Space flight we need to have the Burnout Velocity in km/s at the end of launch

 

 

We would also need to enter the Direction at the End of Flight which can be either North or South.

 

We need to Enter the Decrees above the horizontal at the end of flight

 

And we also need the Altitude above Sea-level in miles.

 

We also must know where the Burnout Point is Located. How many decrees the burnout is located and whether the burnout point is above, below or over the equator.

Now, When the Calculate Trajectory is Computed, it gives us the following data,

  • Distance from Earth to Burnout Point

  • Perimeter

  • H/m Value

  • Eccentricity

  • C, Phase Angle

  • Trajectory r = p / 1+ecos (theta - C)

The type of Trajectory, Parabolic, Hyperbolic, Circular or Elliptical

and the Direction which can be Clockwise or Counter-Clockwise.
