Voyage-esque Mission Planning

Postby bsamuel7 » Fri Jan 17, 2020 2:59 pm

Hello All!

I'm trying to design an interstellar mission similar to Voyager for my senior design project. My team is attempting to fly-by Jupiter for a momentum gain before we head for the interstellar medium. We are using GMAT for this task.

The issue I'm running into is finding the correct starting elements for this to work. I did the "B-plane targeting" tutorial for Mars, and within that tutorial, a lot of key information is already given (i.e., Epoch time, right angle of ascending node, argument of periapsis, etc.).

Does GMAT have a way for me to find this information if I don't know it from the start?

Thanks!
Sam
