abstract = "The asteroid 2001SN263 is one of the possible targets of a
proposed mission that would be the first Brazilian exploration in
deep space, the Aster Mission. This asteroid is composed by three
bodies: Alpha, Beta, and Gamma, in decreasing order of mass. For
this study, it is proposed to split this triple system in two
double systems: Alpha-Beta-spacecraft and Alpha-Gammaspacecraft,
all of them considered to be points of mass, such that it is
possible to use the circular planar restricted three-body problem
as the mathematical model. The goal is to find orbits that can be
used by a spacecraft to observe the bodies Beta and Gamma. Each
orbit can be identified by the initial conditions of the
spacecraft with respect to Beta or Gamma: position and velocity.
These orbits are classified by the minimum average distance
spacecraft-celestial body. The results showed stable orbits around
Beta and Gamma, with an average distance below 1.5 km, under the
influence of the gravity of Alpha and the solar radiation
pressure.",
