Analytical study of the powered Swing-By maneuver for elliptical systems and analysis of its efficiency
(Astrophysics and Space Science, 2018-07-01) [Artigo]
Analytical equations describing the velocity and energy variation of a spacecraft in a Powered Swing-By maneuver in an elliptic system are presented. The spacecraft motion is limited to the orbital plane of the primaries. ...
A numerical mapping of energy gains in a powered Swing-By maneuver
(Nonlinear Dynamics, 2017-07-01) [Artigo]
The present paper studies the effects of a powered Swing-By maneuver, considering the particular and important situations where there are energy gains for the spacecraft. The objective is to map the energy variations ...
Analytical study of the swing-by maneuver in an elliptical system
(Astrophysics and Space Science, 2018-02-01) [Artigo]
The objective of the present paper is to derive a set of analytical equations that describe a swing-by maneuver realized in a system of primaries that are in elliptical orbits. The goal is to calculate the variations of ...
A numerical study of powered Swing-Bys around the Moon
(Advances In Space Research, 2015-07-15) [Artigo]
The present research studies Swing-By maneuvers combined with the application of an impulse at the spacecraft periapsis passage. The studies were made for different values of r(p) (periapsis distance), delta V (magnitude ...
Searching for capture and escape trajectories around Jupiter using its Galilean satellites
(Computational and Applied Mathematics, 2015-07-01) [Artigo]
This paper has the goal of searching for natural trajectories that can be used for a particle or a spacecraft coming from a region of the space far from Jupiter system to be captured into this system by making close ...
