The problem of flying around configuration design and the orbit maneuver of the distributed InSAR satellites is studied. First, the algorithms of flying around Configuration design based on Hill Function is put forward. Then the relationship between flying around Angle and errors of RAAN and inclination is given. At the same tine, the stability of the flying around angle is analyzed. Finally, according to the properties of flying around configuration distributed satellites, the two layer iterative strategy for in orbit and out orbit planes based on Keplerian elements is proposed. Simulation results show that the strategy of
flying around configuration design and the orbit control is effective and is applicable for engineering application.
