Navigation (Nav)/Prop software is used to support shuttle mission analysis, production, and some operations tasks. The Nav/Prop suite containing configuration items (CIs) resides on IPS/Linux workstations. It features lifecycle documents, and data files used for shuttle navigation and propellant analysis for all flight segments. This suite also includes trajectory server, archive server, and RAT software residing on MCC/Linux workstations.

Navigation/Prop represents tool versions established during or after IPS Equipment Rehost-3 or after the MCC Rehost.

This work was done by Tomas Bruchmiller, Sanh Tran, Mathew Lee, Scott Bucker, Catherine Bupane, Charles Bennett, Sergio Cantu, Ping Kwong, and Carolyn Propst of the United Space Alliance for Johnson Space Center.
