Abstract

In a prior study, a methodology was developed for computing approximate large displaced orbits in the Earth-Moon circular restricted three-body problem (CRTBP)by the Moon-Sail two-body problem. It was found that far from the L1 and L2 points, the approximate two-body analysis for large accelerations matches well with the dynamics of displaced orbits in relation to the three-body problem. In the present study, the linear stability characteristics of the families of approximate periodic orbits are investigated.
