Single Impulse Deorbit from an Elliptical Orbit

Description:Calculates the single impulsive deorbit maneuver required to establish a reentry altitude and flight path angle relative to a non-rotating, spherical Earth. The algorithm uses a tangential delta-v applied opposite to the velocity vector of an initial elliptical orbit to establish the de-orbit trajectory.
