The trajectory design of the interplanetary mission "Demonstration and Experiment of Space Technology for INterplanetary voYage, DESTINY" is discussed. The trajectory optimization of low-thrust spacecraft pose a difficult design challenge. Moreover, DESTINY mission requires many constraints for the orbital design. In advance of optimizing the whole transfer mission, we investigated the basic theory to design which can take into account such constraints.
