Description Using the theory developed by one of the authors in a  previous paper, the authors discuss and present solutions for the low thrust orbital transfer in a large number of applications of practical interest:Telecommunication missions from the Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) or the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to  the Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) Navigation missions from GTO or LEO to the Medium Earth Orbit (MEO).LEO and MEO constellation deployment.Some emerging topics of Mission Analysis have been addressed, as the optimization of the deployment of a constellation with orbits at different RAANs, the introduction of constraints in the trajectory like the minimum perigee altitude, and the existence of many extremal solutions for  the same problem.The authors have  discussed and solved these problems including the J2 and eclipse effects.
