The article proposes an original approach to the formation of controlled virtual orbits of spacecrafts by cloning. The essence of the method consists in obtaining, copying and propagating information about the space-time position of space vehicles in the form of TLE-files with the subsequent purposeful change of certain parameters in their composition and the formation on this basis of virtual orbits that are adequate in real parameters. Such orbits proved to be convenient for semi-real-time simulation of the process of servicing given ground objects and transfer of target information from them to ground stations.
