In this paper we propose an optimal time-delayed feedback control (TDFC) for tracking unstable periodic orbits (UPOs). It is shown that TDFC will drive a trajectory onto a periodic orbit while minimising an integral of a cost function of the error in periodicity and the control effort. This optimal TDFC relies on the linearisation about the delayed trajectory not the UPO itself and therefore can be implemented without a priori knowledge of a reference orbit. This optimal TDFC is applied to the problem of tracking an unstable periodic orbit in the nonlinear equations describing the circular restricted three-body problem. The results of this investigation demonstrate that TDFC could efficiently drive a spacecraft onto a periodic orbit in the vicinity of a (UPO) halo orbit.
