Abstract : We consider an object on a Keplarian ballistic trajectory outside the earth's atmosphere travelling toward a nominal target. What differential velocity correction must be applied to this object to hit a target differentially displaced in time and space from the nominal one. And what errors at the displaced target are produced by errors in the various firing parameters. (Author)
