3-Dimensional Necklace Flower Constellations Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2017, Springer Science+Business Media B.V. A new approach in satellite constellation design is presented in this paper, taking as a base the 3D Lattice Flower Constellation Theory and introducing the necklace problem in its formulation. This creates a further generalization of the Flower Constellation Theory, increasing the possibilities of constellation distribution while maintaining the characteristic symmetries of the original theory in the design.
