Abstract

This work will present a Multi-Objective approach to the design of the initial, Low-Thrust orbit raising phase for JAXA’s proposed technology demonstrator mission DESTINY. The proposed approach includes a simplified model for Low Thrust, many-revolution transfers, based on an analytical orbital averaging technique, and a simplified control parameterisation. Eclipses and J2 perturbation are also accounted for. This is combined with a stochastic optimisation algorithm to solve optimisation problems in which conflicting performance figures of DESTINY’s trajectory design are concurrently optimised. It will be shown that the proposed approach provides for a good preliminary investigation of the launch window and helps identifying critical issues to be addressed in future design phases.
