Abstract: The new strategy for the deployment of tethered satellite is presented, which is similar to the idea of Hohmann transfer. The dynamics is studied, and the transfer condition is derived from the orbital equations and Kepler′s equation. At last, a numerical example is given .

Key words: tethered satellite, dynamics, Hohmann transfer
