Particle swarm optimisation of interplanetary trajectories from Earth to Jupiter and Saturn

Abstract

One of the most fascinating aerospace problems today is the optimisation of interplanetary trajectories in the Solar System, using gravitational fly-bys in order to reduce fuel consumption and/or mission duration. This is a complex optimisation problem due to the complexity of the models and the lack of analytical solutions, as well as to the presence of… (More)
