Characterize the nonlinear dynamics for large amplitude relative motion in the Hill frame or curvilinear frame in terms of Nonlinear Normal Modes for the case of a circular chief orbit. Characterize the nonlinear dynamics for nonlinear translational rotational coupling of relative motion in terms of Nonlinear Normal Modes. Characterize the nonlinear dynamics for an elliptic Keplerian chief orbit in terms of time periodic Nonlinear Normal Modes using the Liapunov-Floquet transformation. If time permits, investigate the relative navigation problem in the Nonlinear Normal Modes NNMs framework, using the strategies outlined above.
