Abstract : This document contains the requirements for the Central, Test, and Reentry modules of the Gemini B computer software program. The Central module contains the Standby mode, subroutines and other common programming as well as the programming required to use an Auxiliary Tape Memory to reprogram a portion of the computer memory. The Test module contains the software capabilities required to facilitate the calibration and checkout of the Gemini inertial guidance system during prelaunch operations. The Reentry module contains the guidance capabilities that are applicable to the return phase of the mission and contains the orbit navigation, retrograde time determination, and reentry modes. The equations that are to be implemented and the operational requirements are contained herein. (Author)
