Lunar Constants and Models

Title:  Lunar Constants and Models Document
Author:  Ralph B. Roncoli
Date:  September 23, 2005
Reference:  JPL Technical Document D-32296
Summary:  The primary purpose of this document is to provide a single source for the constants and models to be used in the trajectory and navigation design of missions whose objective is to orbit or land on the Moon. A secondary objective is to provide the mission analyst with some basic background information about the Moon, its orbit, and the previous missions that have explored the Moon. As a result, this document contains more information than the typical constants and models document. Some of the data are required for mission studies while other data are simply provided for "educational purposes". This document provides only brief descriptions of the constants and models. The user should consult the references if more detailed information is desired.
