T209-004NA GIANT PLANETS TOUR DESIGN TOOLS FOR ORBITER//LANDER APPLICATIONS (EXPRO+)

on 25 July 2022

ESA Open Invitation to Tender: 1-11418
Open Date: 22/07/2022 14:29 CEST
Closing Date: 16/09/2022 13:00 CEST

ObjectivesResearch and implement prototype building blocks for giant planets moon tours trajectory design, with a focus on SaturnDescriptionESA is involved in giant planets tour design for different mission development levels: it ranges from CDF study (e.g. Ice giants, Io Orbiter) to Phase C/D (JUICE). The program Voyage 2050 proposes fly-by/orbiter/lander missions for giant planets Jupiter and Saturn. Even a sample return mission is being considered. For Voyage 2050, the mission goals and the dynamical environment are different from JUICE. They require research on specific algorithms and the associated software building blocks for the mission analysis software, which do not exist yet at ESA.
