The ESA Huygens probe performed a successful Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL) sequence through Titan's dense atmosphere on January 14, 2005. During all three phases, i.e., the supersonic entry phase, the descent phase, as well as the impact and post impact phases, the probe performed measurements that were used for the reconstruction of its entry and descent trajectory. We first discuss the datasets relevant to the entry and descent trajectory reconstruction. We then provide an overview of the reconstruction strategy, and show preliminary results of the reconstructed entry and descent trajectory, including both position and velocity.
