Constellation Management


Move To Equator

This page includes a simulation that shows the trajectories of 100 balloons with 5 m/s velocity bias toward the equator.

This simulation demonstrates that 5 m/s trajectory control is sufficient to provide significant alteration of the geometry of the global balloon constellation. The trick, then, is to use available trajectory control capabilities in an intelligent manner to maintain a desired constellation geometry objective.
