Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In trajectory design of a spacecraft, reducing the fuel consumption is important factor. In order to find the minimum fuel trajectory, this paper considers the L1 norm as the performance index. This paper discuss design parameters characterizing the L1 optimal trajectory, such as sampling time, flight time and magnitude of thrust. Also, this paper compare with the conventional method from the viewpoint of fuel consumption. In addition, this paper consider the rendezvous problem considering safety.
