Abstract:A performance (delivered mass versus time of flight) estimation technique approximates the performance of different revolution ratio trajectories from a set of optimal trajectories using a linear least square fitting method. This technique brings further understanding of the effect of different revolution ratio outer-planet missions. It also provides performance prediction capability prior to generating optimal mission profiles.
