The swing-by maneuver is known as a method to change the velocity of a spacecraft by using the gravity force of the celestial body. The powered swing-by has been studied to enhance the velocity change during the swing-by maneuver. This paper studies another way of the powered swing-by using tether cutting, which does not require additional propellant consumption, and shows that the proposed powered swing-by can increase the effect of the swing-by as same as using impulsive thrust. Moreover, it is discussed whether the system has possibility to realize both the powered swing-by of a mother satellite and the planetary capture of a subsatellite simultaneously.
