JPL Guidance Algorithm


“NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory tested its G-FOLD divert algorithm experimental landing system at the Mohave Air & Space Port in Mojave, Calif. G-FOLD, which stands for Fuel Optimal Large Divert Guidance Algorithm, enables a rocket to select an alternate landing site, autonomously. The test was performed aboard a Masten Xombie rocket. This effort was performed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory with participation from the University of Texas at Austin, Masten Space Systems, Inc. and NASA’s Flight Opportunity Program, which is managed by NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center”
