File Information

This geometric relationship defines the orientation of the spacecraft’s orbital plane with respect to the mean Sun. The MLTAN/RAAN relationship is important for mission design of sun-synchronous, repeating ground track, and other types of mission orbits that must satisfy Sun-orbit plane and other lighting constraints.
