Abstract: A successive open loop orbit control strategy suitable to hovering orbit was presented.By implementing a continuous pulse thrust control,the satellite was kept in a period of time on a new hovering orbit other than Kaplan orbit.Finally,taking earth synchronous satellites as a target,the implementation method of hovering orbit was studied,and numerical simulation was also conducted.The simulation results show that it is feasible to hover over special space targets in a period of time.
