Two extensions of the fast and accurate special perturbation method recently developed by Peláez et al. are presented for elliptic motion. A comparison with Peláez’s method and with the very efficient Stiefel-Scheifele’s method, for the problems of oblate Earth plus Moon and continuous radial thrust, shows that the new formulations can appreciably improve the accuracy of Peláez’s method and have a better performance of Stiefel-Scheifele’s method. Future work will be to include the two new formulations and the original one due to Peláez into an adaptive scheme for highly accurate orbit propagation.

Abstract

Two extensions of the fast and accurate special perturbation method recently developed by Peláez et al. are presented for elliptic motion. A comparison with Peláez’s method and with the very efficient Stiefel-Scheifele’s method, for the problems of oblate Earth plus Moon and continuous radial thrust, shows that the new formulations can appreciably improve the accuracy of Peláez’s method and have a better performance of Stiefel-Scheifele’s method. Future work will be to include the two new formulations and the original one due to Peláez into an adaptive scheme for highly accurate orbit propagation.
