Perozzi E., Casalino L., Colasurdo G., Rossi A., Valsecchi G. B. Resonant fly-by missions to near Earth asteroids. In: Celestial Mechanics, vol. 83 pp. 49 - 62. Kluwer, 2002.
The authors here propose a mission scenario, aimed at close exploration of a NearEarth Asteroid, exploiting low- V resonant trajectories. These trajectories allow repeated fly-bys of a chosen target. A selection procedure, which has been used to find some interesting mission opportunities in the 20052015 time frame, is described and the corresponding detailed mission profiles are derived, using an indirect optimization method.
