This submission is a MATLAB script named tlto_matlab_otb that can be used to design preliminary lunar missions from Earth park orbit to B-plane encounter at the moon. The software assumes trans-lunar injection (TLI) occurs impulsively from a circular Earth park orbit. The B-plane coordinates used for targeting the final conditions at the moon are expressed in a moon-centered (selenocentric) mean equator and IAU node of epoch coordinate system. The results from this scientific simulation can be used as an initial guess for a finite-burn trajectory optimization program.
