Cislunar missions have the potential to drive scientific progress, technological innovation, and economic growth, making them an essential focus for space exploration in the coming years. Trajectory modeling in cislunar space will play a critical role in the success of these missions. Predicting and planning the trajectories of spacecraft and other objects in regimes of significant interplay between the Earth and the Moon ensures the safety and success of space missions. Avoiding collisions with other objects in space, optimizing fuel consumption, and ensuring that spacecraft arrive at their destinations on time and on course are just a few objectives of trajectory modeling.
Join us for this engaging webinar on A Primer for Motion and Trajectories in Lunar and Cislunar, where we’ll:
- Introduce the fundamental principles and concepts related to spacecraft and other objects whose motions are determined primarily by the influence of the Earth and the Moon
- Cover topics such as orbital mechanics, gravitational forces
- Examine the effects of the lunar environment on spacecraft trajectories, trajectory planning, and navigation and control
Who Should Attend and Why
All scientists, engineers and engineer managers who are interested in Motion and Trajectories in Lunar and Cislunar
