dc.description.abstract The Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) mission, scheduled for launch in November 1996, will employ aerobraking as a means of reaching a low altitude, sun-synchronous mapping orbit. This technique is necessary to minimize the cost of the mission. The dry mass of the spacecraft and the launch vehicle capability do not permit an all-propulsive transfer to the desired orbit. Aerobraking concepts are discussed. en_US
