Thanks much for the link. I read about the probe
years ago because it had a very clever use for an
USO (ultra stable oscillator).

See also a great set of papers at:

Planetary Probe Atmospheric Entry and Descent Trajectory Analysis and

including these two:

Ultra-Stable Oscillators for Radio Science Investigations on Planetary Entry

VLBI Tracking of the Huygens Probe in the Atmosphere of Titan
