In this paper, an evolutionary-based initialisation method is proposed based on Adaptive Inflationary Differential Evolution algorithm, which is used in conjunction with a deterministic local optimisation algorithm to efficiently identify clusters of optimal solutions. The approach is applied to an ascent trajectory for a single stage to orbit spaceplane,(More)
This paper presents the design of a multi-spacecraft system for the deflection of asteroids. Each spacecraft is equipped with a fibre laser and a solar concentrator. The laser induces the sublimation of a portion of the surface of the asteroid, and the resultant jet of gas and debris thrusts the asteroid off its natural course. The main idea is to have a(More)
