Research overview:
In the radio guided navigation in 'MUSES-C' mission, it approaches an asteroid by sustaining a low thrust with electric propulsion and the same navigation is conducted on the way back, too. Now then, we are carrying on basic analysis so as to prevent deteriorating accuracy of navigation and estimate control quantity with propulsion in the period while such thrust is in effect, and conducting basic development and study of a new navigation system in succession to realize this while standing on the analysis.
