“Good corporate drama . . . an enlightening narrative of how new communications infrastructures often come about.” —The Economist, “A Book of the Year 2016” In the early 1990s, Motorola developed a revolutionary satellite system called Iridium that promised to be its crowning achievement. Its constellation of 66 satellites in polar orbit was a mind-boggling technical accomplishment, surely the future of communication. The only problem was that Iridium the company was a commercial disaster. Only months after launching service, it was $11 billion in debt, burning through $100 million a month and crippled by baroque rate plans and agreements that forced calls through Moscow, Beijing, Fucino, Italy, and elsewhere. Bankruptcy was inevitable—the largest to that point in American history. And when no real buyers seemed to materialize, it looked like Iridium would go down as just a “science experiment.” That is, until Dan Colussy got a wild idea. Colussy, a former head of Pan-Am now retired and working on his golf game in Palm Beach, heard about Motorola’s plans to “de-orbit” the system and decided he would buy Iridium and somehow turn around one of the biggest blunders in the history of business. Impeccably researched and wonderfully told, Eccentric Orbits is a rollicking, unforgettable tale of technological achievement, business failure, the military-industrial complex, and one of the greatest deals of all time. “Deep reporting put forward with epic intentions . . . a story that soars and jumps and dives and digresses . . . [A] big, gutsy, exciting book.” —The Wall Street Journal, “A Top 10 Nonfiction Book of 2016” “Spellbinding . . . A tireless researcher, Bloom delivers a superlative history . . . A tour de force.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In the early 1990s, Motorola, the legendary American company, made a huge gamble on a revolutionary satellite telephone system called Iridium. Light-years ahead of anything previously put into space, and built on technology developed for Ronald Reagan's 'Star Wars,' Iridium's constellation of sixty-six satellites in six evenly spaced orbital planes meant that at least one satellite was always overhead. Iridium was a mind-boggling technical accomplishment, surely the future of communication. The only problem was that Iridium was also a commercial disaster. Only months after launching service, it was $11 billion in debt, burning through $100 million a month and bringing in almost no revenue. Bankruptcy was inevitable - the largest to that point in American history. It looked like Iridium would go down as just a 'science experiment.' That is, until Dan Colussy got a wild idea. Colussy, a former CEO of Pan Am, heard about Motorola's plans to 'de-orbit' the system and decided he would buy Iridium and somehow turn around one of the biggest blunders in the history of business. Eccentric Orbits masterfully traces the birth of Iridium and Colussy's tireless efforts to stop it from being destroyed, from meetings with his motley investor group, to the Clinton White House, to the Pentagon, to the hunt for customers in special ops, shipping, aviation, mining, search and rescue. Impeccably researched and wonderfully told, Eccentric Orbits is a rollicking, unforgettable tale of technological achievement, business failure, the military-industrial complex and one of the greatest deals of all time.

For the past eight years, the small automated telescope Raven has been tested in detecting and tracking deep space objects. As the Raven has proven successful in tracking this regular and predictable orbit, its one arc-second accuracy made it a perfect candidate to attempt to accurately track the less predictable Highly Eccentric Orbit (HEO) objects. Ranging data was obtained from the Sirius satellite radio company for the Sirius3 satellite (Satellite Control Center (SCC) # 26626). This satellite was chosen for its long dwell time over the United States and for its favorable Raven tracking conditions. Angles-only data obtained from another Raven telescope located at the AMOS Remote Maui Experiment (RME) facility was used to track the satellite of interest. Then the Analytical Graphics, Inc. Satellite Tool Kit Orbit Determination (STK/OD) program was used to compare the accuracy of the orbit prediction using ranging tracking data from Sirius and angles-only tracking data from Raven. This paper shows the improvement in orbit determination uncertainty obtained by adding Raven observations to the ranging data. The Raven angles data improved the orbit plane uncertainty and eccentricity estimate differences by over 80% when used with the range observations.

This study examined different constellation configurations to determine their suitability for the Mars Network. Some variations on the baseline case of four circular orbits were initially studied. Eccentric orbits were then used to determine their effects on several figures of merit that were selected as representative of the design goals. It was eventually found that the use of eccentric orbits in combination with circular orbits can improve aspects of some navigation and communication figures of merit. The ability to use orbits at different inclinations helps smooth coverage over the middle and upper latitudes for these figures of merit. This configuration has more variability than one consisting of circular orbits, so the occurrence of unfavorable arrangements also results in degradation of some figures of merit. Some cases were used which improved different figures of merit, so a solution could be chosen depending on specified requirements. Anderson, Rodney Jet Propulsion Laboratory

The problem of reference trajectory reconfiguration and long-term uncontrolled recovery of a formation of spacecraft is considered in an eccentric orbit under the influence of the J2 perturbation. Reference trajectories considered are the Projected Circular Orbit, Along-Track Orbit, and their eccentric modifications. Reconfiguration is accomplished using two, finite-pulse thrusts, modeled as impulses. The state transition matrix (STM) is calculated by four methods: (i) analytically from the Hill-Clohessy-Wiltshire equations, (ii) numerical integration using a fourth-order Runge-Kutta method, (iii) from the fundamental matrix of the linearized equations of motion, and (iv) computing the STM for the relative mean orbital elements, the geometric method. Only the geometric method takes into account J 2, and it is shown to perform the transfers most accurately of all the methods. The methods are also applied to the reconfiguration maneuvers of the University of Toronto's CanX 4/5 formation flying mission.

Gravitational waves emitted from binary black hole systems carry energy away from the orbit, and cause the black holes to spiral towards one another and eventually merge. While all such detected systems are effectively circular at coalescence, these binaries may start out with non-negligible eccentricity. Due to certain astrophysical phenomena, it is expected that some binary systems may merge with some residual eccentricity, and so understanding how to measure the waveforms from these systems are of particular interest for future third generation detectors, such as LISA.
