Title

"A Comparison of an MIT Explicit Guidance Principle with MSFC Iterative Guidance."

Alternative Title

Aero-Astrodynamics Internal Note 23-64

Description

From the summary: "Both [guidance] schemes steer toward a specified end point. The MIT scheme uses thrust to cancel out the effective gravity, a nonlinear term, which may be inefficient in certain cases. The MSFC scheme is more closely connected with calculus of variations and optimization theory in a reasonable degree of approximation."
