Figure C-1. Earth Mean Ecliptic and Equinox of 1950.0 (ECL50), Launch SEDR State Vectors

Nomenclature --> S refers to State Vector (position and velocity components) with the subscripts AB, where A is the reference or "from" body and B is the "to" body. The following body definitions are used: S - Sun; P - S/C or Probe; E - Earth; 5 - Jupiter; and 6 - Saturn.

Note that the Earth State with respect to Jupiter and Saturn (S5E and S6E - dashed vectors in figure) will not be provided. These states can be simply derived, if desired, by the PI by vector subtraction of the Sun to Earth State (SSE) and the Sun to Jupiter and the Sun to Saturn States (SS5 and SS6).
