Long-term evolution of space debris under the J2 effect, the solar radiation pressure and the solar and lunar perturbations
Resumen: The aim of this paper is the development of a model to propagate space debris in the geostationary ring considering the J2 effect due to the Earth oblateness, the Sun and Moon perturbations, and the solar radiation pressure. We justify the importance of considering the J2 effect when propagating space debris independently of the ratio A / m for short and long-term propagation. We study the role of the Sun and the Moon in the period and amplitude of the inclination for different values of A / m. Thanks to the Hamiltonian formulation of the problem and the use of Poincaré’s variables it is possible to express the evolution of the space debris through a simplified dynamical system. We test and validate our obtained analytical solutions with the numerical ones, computed with a powerful integrator named NIMASTEP. We analyse the improvements obtained when we include the J2 effect and the third body perturbations by a rigorous comparison with a previous model, which only considers the solar radiation pressure. Finally, we study the effect of the area-to-mass ratio on short and long-term propagation.
