Abstract

The polar regions of the Earth are of particular interest to spacecraft missions in terms of monitoring, provision of communications and resource exploration, and biasing the coverage provided in northern latitudes also has commercial advantages. This paper studies orbit and attitude stability criteria for a solar sail spacecraft that could serve this region and possible strategies for acquisition using the limited resources to miniaturized spacecraft without a propulsion system. A coupled orbit and attitude stability analysis for a spacecraft using solar radiation pressure for displaced orbits provides results based on stability and controllability criteria.
