“D” RENDEZVOUS MISSION TECHNIQUES ACTION ITEM LIST
(To be discussed at next meeting)
1. FCSD and MPAD will provide for review an up-to-date rendezvous navigation tracking schedule for both the LM and CSM.
2. MPAD to present the pre-rendezvous maneuver ground rules and techniques to provide adequate lighting conditions and station coverage.
3. MPAD to report on analysis regarding modification of the RCS Separation burns to reduce probability of recontact due to small maneuver execution dispersions.
4. MPAD to report on which mirror image maneuvers need be biased as well as consequence of not doing so.
5. Crew will report results of simulator exercise regarding use of unstaged LM in terminal phase rendezvous.
6. FCD to report on techniques for checking the rendezvous radar during the mini-football and the football phase for purpose of go/no go.
7. MPAD to report consequences of using the MSFN uplinked PGNCS CSI/CDH targeting in the AGS for maneuver execution in the event of PGNCS failure. That is, are the errors thus incurred acceptable?
8. FCSD will define limits of acceptable TPI time slippage beyond which corrective action must be taken. Apparently, they will be based on CSM active rendezvous lighting constraints.
9. MPAD to establish acceptable difference limits for use in comparison of onboard vs MSFN rendezvous targeting (CSI, CDH, and TPI).
10. MIT to present recommended procedure for controlling the W-matrix by crew input to the LGC and CMC.
11. MPAD to report results of their survey into the onboard computation of CDH execution time which has been showing a tendency to be late. If this persists, it will result in TPI time slip, excess RCS ΔV costs, and difficulty in solution comparison.
12. FCD will report on acceptability of onboard PGNCS accelerometer bias determination while out of MSFN station coverage.
13. Rendezvous maneuver monitoring procedures will be reviewed for both critical and non-critical rendezvous phase burns. Attitude, attitude rate, and over and under speed limits will be established as well as the actions to be taken if they are exceeded. This, in effect, encompasses the procedures to be followed in the event of a partial burn.
