Frozen orbits are required for Earth observational missions, where the trace is repeated on the surface after a certain number of revolutions. The design of those missions is facilitated with the method we present here, which permits us to calculate families of periodic orbits in a reference system that rotates with the Earth. An application to the TOPEX/POSEIDON orbit is presented.
