Abstract
The minimum-time, constant-thrust orbit correction between two close non-coplanar circular orbits is studied using a relative motion formulation in curvilinear coordinates. The associated optimal control problem in the thrust orientation is tackled using the direct method to numerically solve a diverse set of problems for varying orbital radius and inclination. Additionally, an analytical estimate for the minimum-time inclination change maneuver is obtained. Fundamental changes in the structure of the solution and objective function are highlighted depending on the relation between the required radial displacement, inclination change and available thrust.
