Research Project:
CONTACLESS ASTEROID ORBIT MODIFICATION SYSTEM AND BINARY ASTEROID ORBIT MODIFICATION
Year:2013

Research Areas
  • Mechanical aeronautics and naval engineering

Abstract
We study a low-cost interplanetary mission to demonstrate the capability of modifying the orbit of a small (130 ton) asteroid with contactless momentum transfer. The reduced size of the object allows low-delta-V transfer to existing NEOs and greatly simplifies the deflection phase.
