dc.description.abstract The method and terms used to design the target parameters that will be used to insert the Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2 (OCO-2) into the A-train are defined. Comparisons are made to the plan that would have been used had OCO-1 successfully achieved its Injection Orbit. Major differences arise from the fact that OCO-1 was launched on a Taurus XL with a target 65 km below the A-Train while OCO-2 will be launched on a Delta II with a target only 15 km below the A-Train. The new plan is similar to the one used for the CloudSat/CALIPSO missions, but reformulated into a one-step iteration process that is easier to understand. en_US
