dc.description.abstract The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft was launched in 1997 on a mission to observe Saturn and its many moons. After a seven-year interplanetary cruise, it entered a Saturnian orbit for a four-year Prime Mission in 2004 and began a two-year Equinox Mission in 2008. It has been approved for another seven-year mission, the Solstice Mission, starting in October 2010. This paper highlights significant maneuver activities performed from July 2009 to June 2010. We present results for the 45 maneuvers during this time. The successful navigation of the Cassini orbiter can be attributed in part to the accurate maneuver performance, which has greatly exceeded pre-launch expectations. en_US
