"The AS-205/CSM-101 Launch Vehicle Operational Trajectory, Revision 1"

http://hdl.handle.net/2060/19700014017

This document has a list of IGM Presettings, maybe useful for the LVDC++? Maybe, maybe not. I couldn't find this document on here, so I decided to post it.

Good looking out. Especially the actual S-IB pitch table/polynomial.

Hi Guys,
I couldn't help but notice that this forum seems to be becoming more active lately. When the last version of NASSP was released (2012) I had just graduated high school approximately one year earlier. I originally stumbled across Orbiter during the summer between my 7th and 8th grade year in school. I've been playing with it just about as long as you guys have been developing this addon for Orbiter. Obviously back then I was never able to even remotely help out with the project because I was too young to understand all the complexities involved with programming and everything else, but I stumbled upon it simply for the sheer interest in the Apollo program and I was amazed to see at that time that people were actually developing a seemingly very realistic simulator to fly Apollo missions. So yeah, that's my story of how I got introduced to NASSP. At this point I feel I'm pretty capable of helping you guys out somehow and I have an obsessed understanding of the Apollo program and many of the pieces of hardware involved with it. To top that off I am now an undergraduate student at Penn State University studying Aerospace Engineering and I am one year away from graduating with my degree with a concentration in spacecraft. So moral of the story: I've come a long way since I first saw that beautiful Saturn V sitting on the pad in Orbiter 2006 and didn't even understand basic physics yet. I currently run NASSP 7.0 in Orbiter 2010 and I seem to understand it pretty well. What prompted me to write this long post was earlier tonight when, just out of curiosity, I visited the Orbiter Space Flight Simulator and I was extremely excited to read that there is a possible upcoming release of Orbiter in 2015! I was completely astounded. So I visited this forum and some others just to see if people were talking about it and I suddenly realized that the last time I've been on this forum was clear back in 2011. So at this point I'm assuming that it sounds like people are STILL working in NASSP which makes me even more excited because I thought for a long time that it was over and that it didn't seem like another version was going to be released any time soon. If this assumption is correct that you guys are developing a new version again, and if you guys want an extra hand in developing it, I'd be MORE THAN GLAD to dedicate time towards this wonderful project. I've always been a huge fan of it but have never really been able to help and in a sense have felt kind of out of place at these forums because everyone else's posts seemed WAY over my head; Nowadays, ~8 years later, not so much. I'm not an expert programmer and I only have a basic knowledge of C++ but I am very good in CAD software like SolidWorks and various other programs like MATLAB, etc. I may be able to be of more help next year when I take a course in Aerospace Software Engineering which is part of my final semester of study here at PSU. I'm not sure how much that knowledge could help the NASSP project but if it does I really want to help you guys out in any way that I can. I totally want to see another improved version of NASSP released. So if there's any work that needs done that is relatively simple or helpful I'd be glad to help you guys. Just let me know. I'm Philip by the way.  Very Happy

So while going through the newly found source of lost NTRS documents I am particularly looking for any operational trajectories. I already found lots of addendums and alternate mission operational trajectories for the spacecraft, which will be helpful for many RTCC calculations. But mostly I really want to find launch vehicle operational trajectories with targeting presettings. I found two documents so far:

Preliminary AS-503 C' Mission Launch Vehicle Operational Trajectory: Basic Mission

http://timetravel.mementoweb.org/list/20100905101958/http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19730062058_1973062058.pdf

It doesn't have actual targeting presettings for Apollo 8, but it does have target orbital elements for both restart opportunities. Without the exact position at Timebase 6 initialization I can't calculate the full set of targeting parameters from it though.


Saturn V AS-507 "G" Mission Launch Vehicle Operational Flight Trajectory - September Launch Month

http://timetravel.mementoweb.org/list/20100905101958/http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19700072469_1970072469.pdf

This is the second document with a full set of Saturn V targeting presettings I have seen (we also have the documents for Apollo 7 and ASTP, but those are Saturn IBs). It is for a G-type mission but is also the vehicle of Apollo 12, so I guess if Apollo 11 had failed to land on the moon without any major malfunction or loss of life, then Apollo 12 would have attempted the first lunar landing in September 1969 with Apollo 13 having a third shot at landing on the moon in the 60s in the November launch window, when Apollo 12 actually launched. This document has the targeting presettings for three days in the September launch window, so at some point we could use this for an alternative history scenario with the LVDC.

There is no guarantee it ever was on NTRS, but if anyone finds me a full launch vehicle operational trajectory for Apollo 8/AS-503 then... I don't know, eternal gratitude and that good stuff.  ROTFL

Saturn V AS-506 "G" Mission Launch Vehicle Operational Flight Trajectory - July Launch Month

http://wayback.archive-it.org/all/20100527070036/http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19690072999_1969072999.pdf

Yep, that's the actual one for Apollo 11 with all the guidance presettings for the July 16th launch (and July 18th and 21st). Very exciting!

Awesome! Maybe Apollo 8 and the other missions are on there somewhere then. How did you manage to find AS-506, trial and error?
