This question already has an answer here:

I am working on a transformation of ECI coordinates to LVLH (Local Vertical Local Horizontal) coordinates in order to calculate satellite maneuvers. Does anybody know how should I approach the problem? Are there examples available?

the model is not a chaser-target model

  • $\begingroup$ The first three equations are what you need. You can ignore the rest. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble May 20 at 15:11
  • $\begingroup$ thank you @OrganicMarble! Any idea on how to calculate yaw, pitch, and roll? $\endgroup$ – foxy11 May 20 at 15:30
  • $\begingroup$ Y-P-R is no different in an LVLH frame than any other: the angular difference between the body frame and the external coordinate frame. There are hundreds of posts on the internet about how to calculate Y-P-R. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble May 20 at 15:32
