In this paper, we revisit the problem of electric orbit-raising of telecommunication satellites. The paper outlines the mathematical framework we have developed to determine trajectories that minimize the radiation damage during orbit-raising. This framework also allows us to analyze a variety of mission scenarios in order to identify the favourable designs for all-electric satellites. We outline the number and type of thrusters most suitable for the orbit-raising maneuver and the associated design of the power subsystem. We also consider the possible launch options of the satellites and demonstrate the advantages that all-electric satellites have by being stacked together to reduce the launch costs compared to their chemical or hybrid counterparts.
