Abstract:  An analytic predictor corrector guidance algorithm has been developed and tested for aerocapture at several destinations in our solar system, and proposed for demonstration through an Earth based flight test. The presentation will given an overview of the guidance algorithm and results of simulation tests at Earth, Mars, Titan, Neptune, and Venus.
