Rendezous Routine Mode 

Rendezous Routine Mode

Provides the computations required for achieving a rendezvcus. The routine performs essentially the same function as the catch-up routine, with the addition of radar data computations. The radar data is transferred to the conjurer from the rendezvous radar and utilize line computations. These computations are used to achieve a rendezvous between the spacecraft and the target. During the re-entry mode, the retrograde velocity is monitored and retrograde velocity errors are calculated. The distance and heading of the spacecraft with respect to the desired landing site are calculated, and the down range travel to touchdown is predicted. The routine also provides signals to command the spacecraft roll maneuvers during re-entry and provides a display of attitude errors.
