The Asteroid Impact & Deflection Assessment (AIDA) mission is a joint cooperation between European and US space agencies that consists of two separate and independent spacecraft that will be launched to a binary asteroid system, the near-Earth asteroid Didymos, to test the kinetic impactor technique to deflect an asteroid. The European Asteroid Impact(More)
The combination of low-thrust propulsion and gravity assists to enhance deep-space missions has proven to be a remarkable task. In this paper, we present a novel method that is based on evolutionary neurocontrollers. Themain advantage in the use of a neurocontroller is the generation of a control law with a limited number of decision variables. On the other(More)
By the end of 2022 the binary Asteroid Didymos will pass the Earth at a distance of 15 Mio km at its closest approach. Didymos consists of a larger body (Didymain) and a small companion (Didymoon). ESA, together with NASA, DLR, APL and the Observatoire de la Cote d'Azur, are studying a mission called AIDA to test our ability to perform a spacecraft impact(More)
The combination of low-thrust propulsion and gravity assists allows designing high-energy missions. However the optimization of such trajectories is no trivial task. In this paper, we present a novel method that is based on evolutionary neurocontrollers. The main advantage of using a neurocontroller is the generation of a control law with a limited number(More)
