The determination of the optimal trajectory of a spacecraft can be complex, especially when the spacecraft uses a low-thrust propulsion system or when it operates in a challenging dynamical environment. This talk will provide an overview of astrodynamics research being conducted at WSU Astronautics Laboratory to address some of these challenges. Specific examples will include all-electric spacecraft, hurricane monitoring constellations, NuSol probe, and the CubeSat being developed to validate a neutrino detector in space.
