Abstract

This work is a survey on the current knowledge state of binary asteroid systems. The objective is to tie together research on the formation and evolution modeling of such systems, historical and actual astronomical observations, and the corresponding system properties, Delta;V requirements, and surface operations for mission design to some available systems. We also discuss some of the spacecraft mission concepts, from orbiters to landers, targeting binary asteroid systems.
