This report describes an individual project which investigates the effectiveness of geosynchronous debris clean up mission using lunar gravity flyby. Debris removal in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) is naturally more difficult compare to Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) orbit regime due to the large distance from Earth atmosphere.
The project investigates the effectiveness of these new approach scenarios by designing optimum trajectory using Moon’s gravity flyby. The requirement and mission duration will be compared with the other GEO debris removal approaches. It leads to the suitable propulsion system for the mission. This report presents the analysis regarding the legal issues which potentially arise as the consequences of the mission trajectory options. It also discusses the high level concept of operation that relate to a potential business case.
