This document describes a MATLAB script named deorbit_snopt that can be used to compute the optimal impulsive maneuver required to de-orbit a spacecraft in a circular or elliptical Earth orbit. The user provides the classical orbital elements of the initial orbit along with geodetic altitude and relative flight path angle targets at the entry interface (EI).
