BlockageDiagram.LineOfSight(Spacecraft, Vector) Method

Top 

Description

Determines if the source Spacecraft can see the target vector in MJ2000 coordinates using the loaded blockage diagram. The source's body-fixed frame defines the base for the blockage diagram look angle frame orientation. No occultations are considered.

Spacecraft source,


Vector target)

 

 

Arguments

source


Description:

The Spacecraft from which to consider line-of-sight calculations. The body-fixed frame of source defines the base for the blockage diagram look angle frame orientation.

 

 

target


Description:

A vector in MJ2000 coordinates with origin at source to use for line-of-sight calculations.

 

 

 

Return Value

Type:

boolean

 

 

Returns 1 if the source can see the target, 0 otherwise.
