Abstract

A new J2-perturbed time-explicit relative orbit model is developed including the effects of nonlinearities up to third order, chief orbit eccentricity, and J2 perturbation of both the chief and deputy orbits. The J2 acceleration is not averaged and the kinematics for perturbed relative motion are treated correctly. Numerical simulations for the case of vanishing chief eccentricity illustrate the lower error of the proposed model compared with that of the HCW solution. Finally, a perturbation technique is used to obtain analytical J2-dependent corrections to the HCW solution and to previously obtained analytical perturbation solutions that account for nonlinearity effects and chief orbit eccentricity, which are special cases of the J2-dependent analytical solution obtained here.
