The design of space missions is generally driven by severe requirements on the Delta-v budget. Navigation is also becoming more and more challenging, asking for the satisfaction of stringent conditions characterized by unprecedented accuracy. As a consequence, an increased complexity in the trajectory design is needed, ultimately leading to employing high-fidelity models already in the early...
A renewed vision to send humans beyond Low Earth Orbit (LEO) has given rise to a whole range of studies proposing different destinations and operational orbits for a new crew-tended space station; referred here as Deep Space Gateway (DSG). Near Rectilinear Halo Orbits (NRHO) have been identified as one of the most promising destinations for a DSG, due to the combination of both dynamical...
