The fundamentals of orbital mechanics are presented and applied to show how the baseline Earth observing system [Eos] orbits were selected. Scientific goals, spacecraft limitations, and instrument requirements are examined. Instrument synergism issues related to satellite orbits are discussed. It is concluded that, within constraints imposed by the Earth's atmosphere, launch vehicle capability, and other factors, an orbit can be designed to accomplish the Mission to Planet Earth
