Abstract
A classical approach to the many-body problem is that of using special perturbation methods. Nowadays and due to the availability of high-speed computers is an essential tool in Space Dynamics which exhibits a great advantage: it is applicable to any orbit involving any number of bodies and all sorts of astrodynamical problems, especially when these problems fall into regions in which general perturbation theories are absent. The Group of Space Dynamics of UPM(GSD-UPM) has developed a new regularization scheme? called DROMO? which is characterized by only 8 ODE?s and exhibits a higher accuracy when compared with other propagation schemes. It can be used as a general-purpose propagator, but it turns to be useful when a hight fidelity propagation is mandatory. One such case is, for example, that of Near Earth Objects (NEO?s) dynamics. DROMO allows a new approach to the dynamics of NEO?s in the long term, especially appropriated to consider the influence of the anisotropic thermal emission (Yarkovsky and YORP effects) on the dynamics. A new project, called NEODROMO, has been started in (GSD-UPM) that aims to provide a reliable tool for the long term dynamics of NEO?s.
