Recent studies have shown the feasibility of (quasi-)pole-sitter orbits at Mars and Venus, which involves a satellite positioned along or near the polar axis of a planet in order to have a continuous, hemispherical view of the planet's polar regions. In order to further demonstrate the feasibility of this mission concept, this thesis...

When sunlight illuminates a body, a tiny pressure is exerted upon its surface due to the photons impacting on it. Such a principle forms the basis of solar sailing, in which the solar radiation pressure is used to accelerate highly reflective lightweight structures called solar sails. Similarly, a laser-enhanced solar sail is a solar sail in...

The use of Taylor Series Integration (TSI) for the propagation of spacecraft trajectories and its combination with the relatively unknown Unified State Model (USM) coordinate system, resulting in the TSI-USM propagator, is known to allow fast propagation of interplanetary low-thrust trajectories. Unfortunately, the TSI-USM propagator is a...
