This research presents a method of using invariant manifolds to connect libration point orbits. The method presented is applicable to constructing transfers between planar or three-dimensional orbits that have different initial energies. Two deterministic maneuvers are used to connect an unstable manifold trajectory of the first orbit to a stable manifold trajectory of the second orbit. The use of the twobody eccentricity and normalized angular momentum vectors is demonstrated as a viable… CONTINUE READING
