This project is solving the Pilot a Satellite! challenge.

In our project we based the orbital mechanic concepts, especially on the Newton's law of universal gravitational to make visualization tool using matlab. the tool can simulate the satellite transfer orbit using finite thruster maneuvers. To have a view from a satellite as it moves in orbit or transfer orbits we describe a preliminary design for satellite attitude that can be implemented later.
