A network flow approach for constellation planning

Figure 14. Global view of satellite planes and orbital configuration analyzed using 100 satellites in 25 planes with 5 ground terminals. In the left illustration, the red dots show where the satellite was located when an image was captured while the pink line illustrates the pointing at the time of collection. In the right illustration, the pink lines centered on the ground stations mark the downlink access periods. The targets colored in blue are those that were not considered during planning due to being in eclipse and not meeting the specified lighting constraints.
