Abstract

This paper investigates displaced periodic orbits at linear order in the circular restricted Earth-Moon system (CRTBP), where the third massless body utilizes a hybrid of solar sail and a solar electric propulsion (SEP). A feedback linearization control scheme is implemented to perform stabilization and trajectory tracking for the nonlinear system. Attention is now directed to binary asteroid systems as an application of the restricted problem. The idea of combining a solar sail with an SEP auxiliary system to obtain a hybrid sail system is important especially due to the challenges of performing complex trajectories.
