I am trying to work out how to calculate / model a rendezvous and proximity operation between two spacecraft. I have read several research papers, but none of them walk me through step by step how to do the calculations. I would ultimately like to be able to model things in NASA GMAT or write MATLAB code to do things.
- Where can I find the necessary algorithms for calculating RPO?
- Is there a tool available, such as NASA's GMAT, to help me model RPO?
