NASA JPL’s Planning Transport and Manufacturing for Lowest Cost Technology


NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has developed a method applicable to transportation and manufacturing. A new algorithm alleviates some mathematical difficulties of planning segmented trajectories for the lowest cost. The algorithm involves a modified Newtonian iterative method in which periapse times, closest approach distances, and orientations of approach hyperbolas serve as independent variables.
