Cluster Constellation Separation History


Intervals between "Finish" and "Start" are times in which the manoeuvres are occuring and spacecraft are changing orbit

The separation distances refer to the situations (twice per orbit) when the spacecraft are arranged at the vertices of an equlilateral tetrahedron. If two numbers are given (e.g. 10,000/1,000) the second number gives the separation of Clusters 3 and 4, and the first refers to the equlilateral triangle formed by Clusters 1,2 and 3
