dc.description.abstract In the paper, the problem of minimum-fuel aeroassisted spacecraft regional reconnaissance (orbital hopping) is considered. A new nonlinear constrained optimal control formulation is designed and constructed so as to describe this mission scenario. This formulation contains multiple exo-atmospheric and atmospheric flight phases and correspondingly, two sets of flight dynamics. The constructed continuous-time optimal control system is then discretized via a multi-phase global collocation technique. The resulting discrete-time system is optimized using a newly proposed gradient-based optimization algorithm. Several comparative simulations are carried out and the obtained optimal results indicate that it is effective and feasible to use the proposed multi-phase optimal control design for achieving the aeroassisted vehicle orbital hopping mission. en_UK
