Guidance and Control Approaches that Enable Titan Aerogravity Assist for an Enceladus Mission

This white paper will describe how the use of advanced Guidance & Control (G&C) techniques could enable successful aerogravity assist maneuvers at Titan using existing low lift-to-drag ratio (L/D) vehicles and allow an orbiter to enter a Saturn-centered orbit with flybys of Enceladus.
