Techniques for computing and controlling a halo orbit are considered in this paper. It presents a semi-analytical theory for the halo orbits in the Restricted Three Bodies Problem (RTBP), that is valid and amenable to computation to any order. Results are presented up to order 11. The Floquet modes of the monodromy matrix are used to define a local optimal control procedure through the concepts of projection and gain functions. © 1987.
