The full statement by Tass said: "The satellite is now revolving round the earth along an

elliptic trajectory at the estimated height of up to 565 miles.

By increasing the time duration to friction reducing moment t\, major axis of the elliptic trajectory varies very slightly (Fig.

Controlling dry friction during both the semi-periods of the plane excitation, the part on the plane gets positioned and performs search along elliptic trajectory. Thus, distance, travelled by the part from the initial position towards the center of steady state trajectory, is significantly larger than that under constant dry friction force, whereas the trajectory of steady motion of the part is elliptic.

elliptic trajectory at the estimated height of up to 565 miles."

The performed investigation showed, that under the same friction coefficient and excitation frequency, as the plane is excited by the

elliptic trajectory, the displacement of the part from the initial point to the centre of the steady search motion is bigger than that under circular excitation of the plane.
