See list attachedSeptember 12, 196969-PA-T-118APA/Chief, Apollo Data Priority CoordinationInvitation to an Apollo 13 Lunar Orbit Mission Techniques meeting
“The time has come” the walrus said, “to talk of many things.” This classic quotation apparently now applies to the Apollo 13 lunar orbit mission techniques and this walrus is suggesting Tuesday, September 23. Bob Lindsay has subjected his flight plan to three iterations already and it's shaping up nicely; the FOD guys have a lot of answers regard- ing CSM DOI, LM descent targeting and general trajectory information, and, if no one objects, we're going to aim for a Fra Mauro landing to break the data flow log jam.
As a result of the modifications to the Apollo 12 baseline for point landing like early undocking and CSM DOI, there are a number of things to be understood and agreed to. For example –
1. LOI and DOI targeting and subsequent orbits.
2. PDI dispersions; i.e., trim or no trim.
3. Is a CSM separation burn needed? If so, when?
4. The abort situation in general and specifically – should we consider reducing the standard altitude from 60 n.m. to 45 (say)?
5. Descent trajectory modifications for optimum DPS propellant usage.
6. Descent targeting objectives.
7. Use of RLS and LPD.
8. — and like that —
Room 378, Building 4, has been reserved for this clambake. We'll start at 9 a.m.
