The proposed approach is based on the decomposition of the orbital phase timeline into the closed “standard” phases − basic activities. Assembling the basic activities of flight timeline in accordance with multipayload release logic, there can be built the orbital phase of payload (PL) pointing of any degree of complexity. The method of additional flight timeline allows injection of any number of spacecrafts to the different Low Earth Orbits (LEO) assuming their feasibility by launch vehicle (LV) energetic performances. The important point of this approach is that the assembling of the orbital phase of a flight is provided by tuning of the mission data flags without change of the onboard software (SW) source code.
