Abstract

From March 20, 2019 to April 30, 2019, the 10th China Trajectory Optimization Competition (CTOC10) was jointly held by the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The CTOC10 focused on trajectory optimization for Jovian exploration. The team from Harbin Institute of Technology won the first prize. In this paper, first, the history of the CTOC is presented. Subsequently, the mission of the CTOC10 is introduced, and an account of the final rankings of the competition is given. Finally, trajectory optimization methods are discussed, and suggestions for practical missions are provided.
