The aim of this paper is to study and provide estimations of the cost of reconfiguration maneuvers in the neighbor- hood of L1 and L2 libration points of the Sun-Earth system. The problem is considered as a function of the parameters of the formation (baseline length, security distances, orientation, reconfiguration time) and simple formulae to evaluate the costs are given.
