Planetary Probe Atmospheric Entry and Descent Trajectory Analysis and Science

October 6 - 9, 2003 Lisbon - Portugal

The first International Planetary Probe Workshop was the first workshop to bring together the community of planetary scientists, spacecraft engineers, and mission designers and planners with expertise, experience, and interests are in the area of entry probe trajectory and attitude determination, and the aerodynamics and measurement of the aerodynamical (aerothermodynamical) properties of planetary entry vehicles.

The workshop comprised presentations, posters, and discussions on the use of entry probe accelerometry and other techniques to reconstruct the entry and descent trajectory of entry probes. Issues addressed included methods, technologies, and algorithms currently employed, techniques and results from the rich history of entry probe science such as PAET, Venera/Vega, Pioneer Venus, Viking, Galileo, and Mars Pathfinder, upcoming missions such as Huygens, Netlander, and Beagle 2, and new and novel instrumentation and methodologies.
