    I'd appreciate data & links on stationkeeping requirements of LEO settelites.

    Thanks. :smile:

    Hi drag,

    I just scanned through my assortment of textbooks and haven't been able to find any hard data. I have found references which describe how satellite missions are planned including the sizing of fuel needs. I don't know how much you'll find in them, but here they are:

    Larson and Wertz, 1992

    Griffen and French, 1991
