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 cruise, it entered a Saturnian orbit for a four-year, prime mission. Due to the success of the prime mission, spacecraft health, and remaining propellant, a two-year extended mission, the Equinox Mission, was approved. Maneuver designs and analyses performed through the first year of the Equinox Mission are presented. Results for the 46 most recent maneuvers are given. A substantial contribution to the navigation success of the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft is the continued accurate performance, which has exceeded the pre-launch expectations and requirements. en_US
