The present study globally searches for two-impulse, low-energy transfers to the Moon in the planar bicircular restricted four-body problem with transfer time up to 200 days. A grid search combined with a direct transcription and multiple shooting technique reveals numerous families of optimal low-energy solutions. We investigate a trade-off between transfer time and ΔV by exploring Pareto–optimal solutions.

Abstract

The present study globally searches for two-impulse, low-energy transfers to the Moon in the planar bicircular restricted four-body problem with transfer time up to 200 days. A grid search combined with a direct transcription and multiple shooting technique reveals numerous families of optimal low-energy solutions. We investigate a trade-off between transfer time and ΔV by exploring Pareto–optimal solutions. Analyzing orbital characteristics based on multi–body dynamics, we show useful perturbations of the Sun, Earth, and Moon to reduce ΔV.
