The recent intriguing question Why is NASA proposing an EMEJ (MEGA) trajectory for Europa Clipper instead of EEJ? quotes "A launch service request... recently put out for Europa Clipper to do a flyby of Mars on its way to Jupiter"
Launch Vehicle Performance: The launch vehicle shall deliver a minimum 6065 kg Europa Clipper spacecraft (SC) with Mars-Earth-Gravity-Assist (MEGA) trajectory characteristics as follows: C3 value of 41.69km2/sec2 and a DLA range of 30-32 degrees.
Launch Period: Europa Clipper will be launched during a 21-day launch period beginning October 10, 2024 and ending on October 30, 2024.
My understanding is that this launch should have an asymptotic velocity relative to Earth of about 6.5 km/s (i.e. above escape velocity) in magnitude and in a direction defined by a Right Ascension and a Declination of Launch Asymptote (RLA and DLA). This direction is a point on the celestial sphere and so is relative to Earth's poles and equator.
Where will this declination of 30 to 32 degrees point? It seems like it's "straight up" if the launch was from a latitude of 30 to 32 degrees, is that right? Is this just a fancy way of specifying "where on Earth" the launch will be, or is it a strong constraint on the launch in other ways as well?
