Geosynchronous Orbit Design

Description:Calculates the equilibrium longitudes and radii of geosynchronous satellites based on the EGM96 gravity model of degree (zonals) and order (tesserals) 3. These are the four Earth-relative locations where the proper combination of geocentric radius and east longitude will minimize the longitudinal drift of satellites located at these points.
