[en] We consider the orbital maintenance problem on a quasi-satellite orbit about the Martian moon, Phobos. The orbit is computed using a high-fidelity ephemeris model so that the major sources of disturbances are due to measurement error. Two types of orbit maintenance schemes are considered. The first is based on asymptotically tracking the desired trajectory and the second is based on stabilizing to the manifold of trajectories that share the same Jacobi constant as the reference trajectory. The latter can be done because trajectories with the same Jacobi constant are in the neighborhood of one another. The results show that the trajectory-tracking scheme has lower fuel consumption when tracking must be precise and that the approach of stabilizing to a manifold has better fuel consumption at the expense of tracking.
