MechVal - Your Low T Auto-Co-Pilot

makes the impractical possible

Take the guess work out of very low TRW interplanetary transfers ...

  • How long will it take to Pe Kick ready for a departure burn?

  • How much will Kerbin radial my orbit as I crawl out of the gravity well?

  • Where & when should I put my Pe to kick it all off?

  • Where will my trajectory go anyway?

Got 'no time' for low thrust? Less IS Moar - just doing the vanilla Pe kicks could let you slash your propellant mass = moar thrust!

MechVal will hold your hand and do all the tedious node management:

  • Set your desired maneuver node

  • MechVal will split off a Pe kick sequence. 20 nodes? let MechVal manage that mess!

  • If you have the thrust use it on the residual departure node, or...

  • MechVal can split that into little chunks that let you see how the planet will mess with you

  • Tell MechVal to 'Pull all of those 40 nodes back 180 seconds' and she'll painstakingly adjust each node individually - even the 20 kick nodes that are all on top of each other - try and do that by hand.
