Some Initial Conditions for Disposed Satellites of the Systems GPS and Galileo Constellations

Figure 18

Time evolution of eccentricity (a) and critical angle (b) of a GPS satellite with a = 26,559.74 km whose eccentricity reaches the value of 0.6 after 200 years. Initial conditions: e = 0.005, I = 56.06°, 𝜔 = 0°, Ω = 270°, IL = 18.28°.
