     View Summary

    <p>This paper is on optimal trajectory of future lunar lander with coasting in powered descending phase. For the light weight/low cost lunar lander, optical navigation using onboard cameras to identify their current state is one of very few techniques available to achieve the pin-point landing. The optical navigation is to be operated between the powered descending phases, when the orbital maneuvering engine (OME) is turned off. This paper shows the series of different coasting conditions and discusses the effect of the coasting to the trajectory and fuel consumption. The results give some ideas for future gravitational planetary missions, which uses coasting during their powered descending phase. In addition, optimal trajectory with double coasting for the SLIM project is shown in this paper.</p>

     View Summary

    Thanks to recent lunar exploration missions, high-resolution lunar surface observation data was obtained. In future lunar exploration, landing is being requested at a specific point having higher scientific interest than other areas. The SLIM project is demonstrating pinpoint landing technology, which entails a combination of “autonomous image-based high-precision navigation technology" and “autonomous guidance technology intended to generate a fuel-optimum landing trajectory." This paper presents powered descending trajectory design in terms of trajectory optimization. As usually considered in general space mission development, an optimal solution in terms of minimum fuel consumption is the basis of investigation. This study addresses trajectory optimization considering specific objective functions derived from practical constraints regarding mission design, such as altitude, downrange length, and visibility from ground stations. In this paper, nominal trajectory design considering minimum fuel consumption is first presented, followed by parametric studies to identify the sensitivity to changes in initial conditions under which powered descending starts. Finally, trajectory optimization results with various types of objective functions are presented.
