Abstract

For the design of spacecraft transfer orbits in the Earth-Moon system, we need to model the dynamics in the context of the Planar Elliptic Restricted Three-Body Problem (PER3BP) since it has a non-negligible eccentricity. In this paper, we investigate invariant manifolds of the PER3BP by analyzing Lagrangian Coherent Structures (LCS). In particular, we show that the transfer orbits from the exterior realm to Moon can be developed by employing the geometric characteristics of the LCS obtained by long time numerical integrations.
