Abstract

Feasibility of operative orbits in the Pluto-Charon system has been investigated in this work. Given that currently only the New Horizon NASA mission will perform a quick fly-by of Pluto-Charon, the chance to close a spacecraft in orbit around the system would represent a significant add-on in the science knowledge domain and an interesting challenge from the flight dynamics perspective. A R3BP coupled with the invariant manifolds are the main tools here exploited to manage the trajectories design; possible itineraries and strategies, that can meet the requirements of costs minimization, long operative life and adequate coverage of the surfaces, are proposed.
