The article considers the analysis of the mutual evolution of the two nominally synchronous precessing low-ellipticity orbits. The recommendations about the parameters of the being formed synchronous precessing orbit (SPO ) in order to minimize the characteristic speed loss for its maintenance and ensuring the eventual transition into a working orbit are developed. The analysis of the necessary precision of knowledge of the orbit parameters for long-term forecasting and planning SPO correction dates as well as the need for their implementation was performed.
