dc.description.abstract Originally scheduled for a launch in the 2016 Earth to Mars opportunity, NASA’s Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy, and Heat Transport (InSight) mission will launch the next lander to Mars in May-June 2018 arriving to the Red Planet in November 2018. Derived from the Phoenix mission which successfully landed on Mars in May 2008, the InSight Entry, Descent, and Landing system will place a lander in the Elysium Planitia region. This paper specifies the mission and navigation requirements set by the Project and how the final mission and navigation design satisfies those requirements. en_US
