The parameterization method (pm) has been used to compute high-order parameterizations of invariant manifolds of vector fields at xed points. This paper extends such approach to invariant manifolds of periodically-perturbed vector fields about a periodic orbit with the same frequency, with a direct application on the libration points of the Sun-Earth-Moon system. The Sun-Earth-Moon environment is modeled by the so-called Quasi-Bicircular Model (qbcp), which is a coherent restricted four-body model that describes the motion of a spacecraft under the simultaneous gravitational influences of the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun. The pm is adapted to account for the explicit time-dependency of the corresponding vector field. This new procedure yields high-order periodic semi-analytical approximations of the center manifolds about the libration points L1;2 of the periodically-perturbed Sun-(Earth+Moon) and Earth-Moon systems. These approximations are then used to initialize the computation of Poincaré maps, which allow to get a qualitative description of the non-autonomous dynamics near the equilibrium points. It is shown that, with this new approach, the semi-analytical description of the center manifolds in a coherent four-body environment is valid in a neighborhood significant enough to be used in practice. In particular, the well-known Halo orbit bifurcation is recovered in all cases.
