Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the possibility of asteroid survey mission enabled by advanced solar sailing technology. The study is focused not on the solar sail spacecraft itself but on its orbital dynamics to realize the missions. A novel NEA flyby survey mission with a light-weight solar sail spacecraft to increase the accessibility to NEAs located in the vicinity of the Earth's orbit is proposed. Numerical study suggests that our approach increase the opportunities in proximity to NEAs which have eccentric and inclined orbits.
