We present a study of the transfer of satellites between elliptic Keplerian orbits using Lyapunov stability theory specific to this problem. The construction of Lyapunov functions is based on the fact that a non-degenerate Keplerian orbit is uniquely described by its angular momentum and Laplace (- Runge-Lenz) vectors. We suggest a Lyapunov function, which gives a feedback controller such that the target elliptic orbit becomes a locally asymptotically stable periodic orbit in the closed-loop dynamics. We show how to perform a global transfer between two arbitrary elliptic orbits based on the local transfer result. Finally, a second Lyapunov function is presented that works only for circular target orbits.
