summary is shown in Table 3. This delta-v included g-loss assumptions (2.5% of ideal delta-v), navigation and trajectory correction error assumptions (20 dsec), and contingencies for out- of-tangency Titan rendezvous (2% of ideal delta-v). mu Titan radius Titan caPture orbit altitude 9.027E+ 03 km 3/s2 2575 km 2000 km circular Vhp relative to Titan hyperbolic velocity at Titan perlapsis circular velocitv at Titan caDture orbit 4250 m/sec 4691 m/sec 1405 m/sec ITotai delta-v I 3455 Im/sec ideal… CONTINUE READING
