PDF document and MATLAB script called oota_matlab.m that can be used to determine optimum one and two impulse orbital transfers between non-coplanar circular and elliptical orbits. The method is general and the initial and final orbits need not be coapsidal. The algorithm is based on the orbit transfer and rendezvous work of Gary McCue, Gentry Lee and David Bender, described in “Numerical Investigation of Minimum Impulse Orbital Transfer”, AIAA Journal, 3, 2328-2334 (1965); and “An Analysis of Two-Impulse Orbital Transfer”, AIAA Journal, 2, 1767-1773 (1964).
