Abstract : This article describes in a general way optimal rendezvous control theories and methods inside and outside China. It stresses a discussion of progress in China in the last few years.It introduces the results of research on the theories and methods of adjacent near circular orbit optimal rendezvous under the effects of finite thrusts, ordinary coplanar elliptical orbit general optimal rendezvous, multiple pulse thrust linearized and nonlinear rendezvous orbital optimal guidance and horizontal impulse thrust optimal rendezvous control.
