Classifications of Time-Optimal Constant-Acceleration Earth-Mars Transfers


A parametric study of Earth-Mars time-optimal constant-acceleration transfers is presented. Various continuation methods are introduced to efficiently compute large numbers of transfers for compilation into a database. Once computed, transfers are subsequently classified by observed shared characteristics, and the relationship between classifications and properties of the optimal control problem is explored.
