cubesat deployment from a near rectilinear halo orbitSatellites deployed from the Gateway in a Near Rectilinear Halo Orbit (NRHO) must be safely delivered their desired destinations in cislunar space and beyond. The presence of simultaneously significant gravitational forces from the Moon, the Earth, and the Sun, along with the absence of atmospheric drag, complicates the mission design problem for cubesats deployed from the Gateway. The current investigation defines candidate green zones for safe satellite deployment, allowing a passive departing spacecraft to avoid recontact with the Gateway as it departs the NRHO vicinity.
