dc.description.abstract Prior to atmospheric entry, Mars Pathfinder flight system will separate its entry vehicle from its cruise stage, and establish the entry conditions for a passive and unconventional entry, descent, and landing approach. This paper summarizes a separation dynamics analysis conducted to demonstrate that the cruise separation system design is viable and ensure that adequate design margins exist with the effects from parameter uncertainty included. en_US
