This article describes the effort to find optimal stationary satellite constellations with respect to the position dependent function DOP (Dilution of Precision) for any given number of satellites. After investigating the possibilities to find an analytical solution, a simulation using the Simulated Annealing algorithm is implemented in MATLAB. While refining the algorithm, very simple arrangement rules become visible, which are further investigated using the implemented simulation method and various plots.
