|Cable tethered to an asteroid can be used for a slingshot maneuver to save fuel in space missions|
The objective of this work is to study orbital maneuvers that can be performed by a passage of the vehicle by a celestial body and with the help of cables or impulsive propulsion. It will be considered that the space vehicle can move in the three dimensional space, thus allowing the change of the orbital plane. Two main options will be considered: i) "propelled Swing-By", which consists...
The study of orbital maneuvers with minimum fuel consumption in space missions are of great interest in Celestial Mechanics. Therefore, the objective of this work is to study a combination of gravity-assisted maneuver combined with the application of continuous low-thrust propulsion to a spacecraft. In the pure gravity maneuver the spacecraft passes close to the celestial body and uses ...
