|Abstract: ||Mars landers to date have flown ballistic entry trajectories with no trajectory control after the final maneuver before entry. Improvements in landing accuracies (from ~150 km from the target for Mars
Pathfinder to ~30-40 km for MER and Phoenix) have been driven by approach navigation improvements. MSL will fly the first guided-entry trajectory to Mars, further improving
accuracy to ~10-12 km from the target.|
