Attitude Control and Orbit Determination of a Crewed Spacecraft with Lunar Lander in near Rectilinear Halo OrbitNASA's Gateway program plans to place a crew-tended spacecraft in cislunar Near Rectilinear Halo Orbit (NRHO). The craft will support arrivals of crews in Orion and the undocking and return of a crewed lunar lander. The impact to at-titude control of a Gateway with the addition of a lunar lander is investigated. Perturbations from Orion and a lander's docking and undocking from the Gate-way are considered. Deep Space Network (DSN) tracking is supplemented with optical measurements to lunar north pole craters to analyze the possible benefit in solution accuracy and/or DSN scheduling relief.
