This paper investigated the manifold-based robust stationkeeping approach for the halo orbit near the Earth-Moon L2 point in the ephemeris model. The well-known Hamiltonian structure-preserved (HSP) method is utilized to design the controller for stationkeeping. However, conventional HSP method is proposed under the ideal condition, where the equations of motion are constructed in the circular restricted three-body problem, and the navigational uncertainty is not considered as well. Actually, these uncertainties always exist and have significant influence on the performance of stationkeeping. To make the results more realistic, the dynamics in the ephemeris model is used to describe the motion of a spacecraft. A filtering structure-based navigation is incorporated in the stationkeeping, where the navigational uncertainty is introduced. In addition, the navigation filter is reformed to compensate for the control uncertainty. Simulation is performed to observe the influence of the control gain and the magnitude of the uncertainty on the stationkeeping performance.
