Abstract

The optimum trajectory for a two-stage rocket for putting a pay load into a 100-nautical mile circular orbit is determined by an optm technique called SWIFT - Sequential Weight Increasing Faotor Technique. The optimum parameters-vertical rise time and pitch rate are compared with those obtained by empirical and other methods and found to be in excellent agreement. The present method is so general that it can be extended to 3D-Trajectory optimization.
