The guidance margins for the electrically propelled trajectories are investigated. What this paper deals with is to determine how much chemical and electric propulsion fuel to be onboard. The difficulty lies in distributing the margins for the thrust arcs. The sub-space decomposition technique as well as the L-inf. norm criterion are utilized to obtain the results. The numerical example is given for the Japanese asteroid sample and return mission MUSES-C, which well illustrates the discussion.
