Abstract

The existence of collision orbits in the vicinity of the distant retrograde region is welldocumented in works involving satellite capture. This study utilizes the orderly arrangement of collision regions and a dynamical analysis to facilitate a focused sampling of phase space. This limited sampling provides an accurate guess for predictor-corrector algorithms for an arbitrary number of transfer types. A procedure is outlined that calculates favorable insertion points in terms of transfer time and ΔV. The relationship between families of transfer orbits and the morphology of phase space near the distant retrograde region is discussed.
