Abstract: For the interplanetary mission, the spacecraft must require the trajectory correction maneuver (TCM) to reduce the trajectory error due to the influence of unexpected external perturbation forces. There are many kinds of researches focused on these TCM techniques for the impulsive thrust. Among them, the B-plane targeting method is mainly applied to the interplanetary mission as TCM method. However, there are brilliant developments in the propulsion systems; especially the electrical propulsion system is adop…
