This paper presents the latest results on the navigation and orbit determination analysis of the European Student Moon Orbiter (ESMO). The paper contains an investigation into the required orbit determination accuracy to inject the spacecraft into an orbit around the Moon that can be maintained without control for at least six months. A new baseline transfer is proposed together with a navigation strategy which fulfil the stringent requirement on the total propellant budget available for this challenging mission.
