Abstract. The problem of maneuvering spacecraft to change the orbit in such a way as to multiply the number of the spacecraft passes over a local area on the Earth surface is considered. Conditions of additional observation of the area are derived, and an algorithm is developed for determining the spacecraft orbits parameters providing an improvement of observation characteristics. An example is presented demonstrating the orbit parameters determination with the use of revealed dependences, and the costs of the spacecraft maneuvering are estimated.
Keywords: quasi-synchronous orbit, swath width latitude, spacecraft maneuvering
