The Titan atmosphere enhancement adds the atmosphere model used for planning Huygens to Saturn's natural satellite Titan in Orbiter. The model can be used up to 1300 km altitude, though only the lower 700 km are recommended.

The atmosphere model allows a much smoother and realistic reentry in orbiter, as possible with the default exponential atmosphere model, because it also includes atmospheric composition and temperature profile.
