A method to incorporate low-thrust propulsion into the invariant manifolds technique is presented in this paper. The low-thrust propulsion is introduced by means of special attainable sets that are used in conjunction with invariant manifolds to define a first guess solution. This is later optimized in a more refined model where an optimal control formalism is used. Planar low-energy, low-thrust transfers to the Moon as well as spatial lowthrust, stable-manifold transfers to halo orbits in the… CONTINUE READING
