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. The main advantage in the use of a neurocontroller is the generation of a control law with a limited number of decision variables. On the(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)
Inverse synthetic aperture radars (ISAR) are a valuable instrument for assessing the dynamic state of a large object in low Earth orbit. In particular, the images generated by these radars can reach a sufficient resolution to be used during launch support or contingency operations in low Earth orbit, i.e. for confirming the deployment of structures ,(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)
