Study Of Potential Use Of Spacecraft As Reflecting Objects
The authors of the article analyze distribution of artificial space objects in Earth orbits according to the main
parameters, such as altitude, inclination and eccentricity. The algorithm of constructing ground track of specified spacecraft
orbit has been developed. Potential use of artificial spacecraft as reflecting objects which can scatter or reflect radio waves
has been studied.
Keywords- Space Objects, Radio Communication, Ground Track, Reflected Radiation.
