Abstract : This report provides a description of the guidance equations that are planned for Module III of the Gemini B Computer Program. This module contains the ascent mode, including the Orbit Adjust capability and the Abort Retrotime Predict mode. The equations for the latter are not included in this report. The main logic flow of the equations presented, however, is compatible with, and provides entrance and exit to and from, the Abort Retrotime Predict mode. (Author)
