 In order to rendevous with your target you should make sure that you are closing in, done by translational thrust toward the target. Closing in means you have a negative number on your lower digital read out when **DIGI DIS R/R** is selected. In SSM2007 this rate (velocity) should be kept at >3.00 to meet your target in time. Another task will be to get the Shuttle aligned with the so called R-Bar. That is an imaginary line that connects the target with the center of the earth. With your **DIGI DIS SELECT** switch in **EL/AZ** position you can see how high/low and how far right/left your target is in relation to your -Z axis. If you have positive numbers on your digital readout you have to translate up and/or right and vice versa. When both readouts are 0, you are on the R-Bar. Click on the drawing right.\\ In order to rendevous with your target you should make sure that you are closing in, done by translational thrust toward the target.
