Abstract

In this paper we focus on the motion of a solar sail in the Earth-Sun system, using as a model the Restricted Three Body Problem (RTBP) including the Solar Radiation Pressure (SRP). The system has a family of “artificial” equilibrium points parameterised by the orientation of the sail. We show how to use the information on the natural dynamics of the system to navigate around the family of equilibrium points in a controlled way.
