Trajectory design combining low-thrust and the three-body problem is a challenging area for study. This paper investigates the combination of optimal feedback control with the dynamical structure of the three-body problem. For the nonlinear system, the attractive set of an equilibrium point or a periodic orbit under optimal control is described by the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman partial differential equation. We obtain the solution to the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation by solving the truncation problem successively.
