3D LATTICE FLOWER CONSTELLATIONS USING NECKLACES Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • 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 and maintaining the characteristic symmetries of the original theory in the design.
