The current version of the Mission Plan (this document) represents a draft of the final version of the Mission Plan, due for release at the Mission System critical design review in September 1995. As such, this Mission Plan release is for review only. All information presented represents the most current data as of 30 June 1995. Many issues in the design, particularly in the orbit insertion phase, have yet to be resolved. Consequently, the information is subject to change between now and the Mission System critical design review.
Several appendices that contain more detail pertinent to various technical issues in the Mission Plan will be supplied with the final version. In addition, an appendix addressing compliance of the mission with the Mission Requirements Document will also be supplied.
