This work presents the state-of-the-art in numerical and analytical techniques as well as future trends associated with qmission designq for libration point orbits. It contains papers explaining theoretical developments and their applications, including the accurate description of some actual libration point missions of ESA and NASA. The existing software in the field and some applications beyond the neighbourhood of the Earth are also presented. Special emphasis is placed on the use of dynamical system methodology in the libration-point-orbits mission design.In this study, for the purpose of sampling all combinations of lunar distance and LPA plane change angle, the ... Nominal Earth-to- Gateway AV Cost Figures 5 and 6 show the nominal AV performance cost (excluding upper stage ... Some of the curves shown in Figures 5 and 6 (and many others to follow) are distinctively different for northerly and southerly LPA pre-maneuver geocentric velocity azimuths.
