An electric propulsion configured small halo orbit around L2

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

For future applications, a Lagrange point of Sun-Earth system, L1 or L2 is conceived one of the best point for astronomy and connection ports for outer planets. This paper describes a new useful control method for realizing and keeping small circular Halo orbits around the L2 point, The resulted Halo orbit obtained is compact and circular realized with satisfactorily small thrust. The paper concludes the strategy is applied to many kinds of missions.
