Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the gravity field of Jupiter system and to construct fuel effective trajectory transfers between Jupiter moons by the combination of the tidal force and artificial acceleration such as continuous propulsion. The numerical simulation shows that by using continuous thrust control with manifolds the necessary velocity increments can reduce to about half as much as a trajectory not using manifolds. In addition, introducing continuous thrust makes the transfer time between moons very shorter than the mult-flyby flight.
