This paper investigates a problem of determining the optimal terminal-time or time-to-go ofthe ZEM/ZEV (Zero-Effort-Miss/Zero-Effort-Velocity) feedback guidance law for a varietyof orbital intercept or rendezvous maneuvers. A generalized ZEM/ZEV guidance problem,whose objective is to minimize a combination of the control energy and terminal time, isexamined. Algebraic equations whose solution provides the optimal terminal-time of theorbital intercept/rendezvous problems are derived based on the optimal control theory.The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated for various orbital maneuverproblems.
