UVS Orbit Planning documents

Mariner 9 science planning is documented here from the Mariner 9 imaging team catalog, JPL Technical Memorandum 33-585, Volumes I and II. Scanned copies were made from this publication and are presented here as a helpful way to locate the desired science data sets.

Several notation keys were given as the orbit planning progressed through the mission. The initial key for early orbits is
