3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition Team 5 Moscow State University Department of Mechanics and Mathematics I.Grigoriev, J.Plotnikova, M.Zapletin, E.Zapletina email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org 3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition Method of the solution Problem is solved into two stages. First stage вЂ“ the selection of the scheme of the flight: the selection of the exemplary moments of the start from the Earth and from the asteroids, the selection of asteroids and the order of their visits, taking into account of the possible Earth flyby, obtaining initial approximation for the second stage. Selection of the scheme of flight was made on the basis of solution of the problems two-impulse and three-impulse optimal flight between the orbits of asteroids, or asteroids and the Earth, or the Earth and asteroids, and also the corresponding the Lambert problem. Second stage вЂ“ the solution of the optimal control problem on the basis of PontryaginвЂ™s Maximum Principle for the problems with intermediate conditions and parameters. 3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition Problem Description The motion of the Earth and asteroids around the Sun is governed by these equations: The boundary conditions: start from the Earth 3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition Arrival to the asteroids i=1,2,3 and the flying away Arrival to the Р•arth: The total duration of the flight is limited: 3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition The calculation Earth flyby: A radius of the flight is limited: 3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition The boundary-value problem of PontryaginвЂ™s Maximum Principle. 3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition 3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition Optimality conditions Earth flyby: The boundary-value problem was solved by a shooting method based on a modified Newton method and the method of the continuation on parameters. 3rd Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition Earth в†’ 96 Start in Earth: 58478.103 MJD.
