apollo/saturn 5 postflight trajectory: as-512The postflight trajectory is presented for the Apollo/Saturn V AS-512 flight. An analysis is included of the orbital and powered flight trajectories of the launch vehicle and the free flight trajectories of the expended S-IC and S-II stages. Trajectory dependent parameters are provided in earth-fixed launch site, launch vehicle navigation, and geographic polar coordinate systems. The time history of the trajectory parameters for the launch vehicle is presented from guidance reference release to Command Service Module (CSM) separation. Tables of significant parameters at engine cutoff, stage separation, parking orbit insertion, and translunar injection are included. Figures of such parameters as altitude, surface and cross range, and the magnitude of total velocity and acceleration as a function of range time for the powered flight trajectories are presented.
