The trajectories of Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 through the Saturnian system were selected in such a way that the observations would be complementary. The Voyager 1 trajectory provided a close encounter with Titan, making possible atmospheric occultations, a search for an intrinsic Titanian magnetic field, and studies of the interaction of Titan with either the solar wind or the Saturnian magnetosphere. The trajectory was also designed to provide an optimum geometry for the transmission of S and X band radio waves from the spacecraft through the rings; in this way, the attenuation and scattering of 3.6- and 13-cm waves by the ring particles could be observed. Besides this, Voyager 1 provided radio and ultraviolet occultation studies of Saturn's atmosphere as well as close approaches to three of the moderate-sized icy satellites (Mimas, Dione, and Rhea) and to a number of minor satellites. The much later arrival of Voyager 2 and the Saturn flyby distance were chosen in such a way as to make possible a gravity-assisted continuation on to Uranus and Neptune.
