FM7/Chief, Guidance & Performance BranchAUG 28 196767-FM-T-66FM/Deputy ChiefPrelaunch DAP initialization
During our review of the lunar landing GSOP's, the question of prelaunch DAP initialization was brought up. As far as I can see, there is no use for the DAP until after TLI, isn't that right? For example, the contingency orbit insertion maneuver does not use the DAP nor does CSM guidance of the S-IVB. Accordingly, I should think any initialization should be associated with the first midcourse maneuver while on the way to the moon. Isn't that right?
