Abstract

This paper presents new orbital synthesis results to achieve ballistic and short period out-of ecliptic trajectories, instead of using electric propulsion or solar sail acceleration. The strategy developed utilizes a Jovian gravity first, followed by polar very high speed gravity assists by Earth or Venus. So far, the use of very high speed gravity assists has been conceived not practically useful. However, this paper presents those still effectively contribute to amending the trajectories periods, and to acquiring small sized out-of-ecliptic ballistic trajectories. The biggest advantage of this strategy is to reduce propellant mass carried drastically.
