JCSN: Cassini/MIMI Science Planning and Visualization Tool

JCSN is a science planning and visualization tool for the MIMI instrument on the Cassini satellite.  It can be used to display Cassini spacecraft attitude relative to various bodies in the Saturnian system.  It is also useful for displaying the MIMI instrument sensor fields of view, which provide a simple, visual flight rule constraint checker to find optimum pointing.

The JCSN User's Guide provides a detailed description of the tool.  Due to the rather large screenshots referenced in the HTML, you may need to resize your browser to accomodate them. The User's Guide may also be obtained in PDF format for offline viewing or printing. It can be downloaded from here. JCSN is written in Java and requires Java Webstart to be properly configured on your system and in your browser in order to function.  Please refer to the installation section of the User's Guide for system requirements and directions on installing Java.
