Project Introduction

Rapid Advanced Heliocentric Mission Design for L3, L4, L5, NEO Rendezvous, Capture, Sample Return

Provide fast, new capability for Loose SmallSat Constellation with solar sail and impulsive propulsion to nonlinear heliocentric orbits, high inclination, low energy transfer (see tubes). These include orbits around L3, 4, 5, NEO rendezvous (e.g. Earth Trojans), capture, sample return & for space weather monitoring.
