This training will cover an introduction to the GMAT project, key features, mission examples, current status, and a series of guided introductory tutorials covering simple propagation, orbit transfers, B-plane targeting, finite burn targeting, and multiple-shooting optimization. GMAT is a general-purpose trajectory simulation and design tool for desktop use, co-developed by NASA and commercial partners. You can find out more information at
