Abstract:

This report gives moon-flight-path trajectories as computed by the analog computer. This work on lunar probes and the trajectories is being carried out in a series of reports. This report is a third of that series previous reports being ABMA, Report No. DS-TN-170, 27 February 1958, A Survey of the Lunar Project by Harry K. Ruppe ABMA, Report No. DSP-TM-3-58, 30 May 1958, Derivation and Calculation of Initial MoonHitting Trajectories, by Harry O. Ruppe and Warren H. Straly. The results of this analog survey show that the analog computer is of great value because of its rapidity and flexibility. The accuracy is sufficient for this type survey and the task of reading the plotted trajectories is small when compared to a sheet of digital numbers. Author
