PDF document and a MATLAB script named e2m_matlab.m that can be used to design and optimize ballistic interplanetary missions from Earth park orbit to encounter at Mars. The software assumes that interplanetary injection occurs impulsively from a circular Earth park orbit. The B-plane coordinates are expressed in a Mars-centered (areocentric) mean equator and IAU node of epoch coordinate system. B-plane targets are enforced using either a combination of periapsis radius and orbital inclination, individual B-plane coordinates of the arrival hyperbola, or entry interface (EI) conditions at Mars. The type of targeting and the target values are defined by the user.
Updated MATLAB keywords (strfind, etc.) and DT data file. Minor editing of the MATLAB source code for clearer data display, etc.
Updated e2m_matlab.m main script to use 64bit, September, 2014 version of SNOPT. Also updated input data files.
Binary Ephemeris Files
Added main script file (e2m_matlab_64bit.m) that uses the March 17, 2014 version of SNOPT.
