Default Atlantis Launch program


In v. 2010, I loved getting into Atlantis, pulling up a TERM, using the INP button to enter " run('atlantis/launch') " and a couple of other things, and then watching the autopilot get me into orbit.

In v. 2016, I was surprised to find that these commands still work!

However, watching the text display during launch, I noticed some problems.

For eg:

pitch 40
setpitch initiated (40deg, tmax=10, tol=0)
setpitch timed out (t=10.02)
residuals: angle=###, vel=###

And since the shuttle didn't change pitch, I knew things were awry.

(all the pitch commands ended this way)

So -- is there a way to fix the old method, or is there a new method to get the shuttle into orbit (so I can dock at the ISS) in v. 2016?

Thanks for your help!

I just found the tutorial, and from there, the AscentAP module.

These should get me going. Thanks anyway!

(I guess LaunchMFD is obsolete, for this task anyway...)
