Description
The EstimatorCovariance object represents the total covariance associated with an Orbit Determination / State Estimation process. The size of the covariance matrix itself is determined by the total number of items being estimated or considered in the process.
Users cannot create instances of this type of object. However, users can access instances of this object type that have been created indirectly, for example as children of other objects. Users can also access any static properties and methods on this object type.

Description

CorrelationMatrix

The correlation matrix. Derived from the covariance matrix.

DeclaredName

The name of the object as declared.

Diagonal

An array containing the elements of the diagonal (e.g. the Variances) of the Covariance matrix. The dimension of the array will equal the Number of Rows for the Covariance.

DisplayName

The name displayed for this object in output windows such as views, plots, and reports.

Matrix

The covariance matrix in the MJ2000 equatorial frame associated with all properties to be estimated. Symmetry of the covariance matrix is enforced when setting elements of this matrix.

NumberOfRows

The number of rows in the Covariance matrix.

ObjectId

The unique identifier for the object.

ObjectType

The type of the object.

SmoothedDiagonal

An array containing the elements of the diagonal (e.g. the Variances) of the Smoothed Covariance matrix. The dimension of the array will equal the Number of Rows for the Covariance.

SmoothedMatrix

The smoothed covariance matrix.

SquareRootInformationMatrix

The cholesky decomposition of the inverse of the covariance matrix.


Name

Description

ClearSavedStates

Clears previous saved states for this object.

GetFromFile

Load the object state from the specified FreeFlyer object file.

GetFromString

Load the object state from the specified string.

PutToFile

Convert the object state to FreeFlyer object xml and write to a file.

PutToString

Convert the object state to FreeFlyer object xml and return as a string.

ReferenceEquals

Returns 1 if the argument refers to the calling object and 0 otherwise.

Restore

Restore an object's state from a previously saved state.

Save

Save the object's state so that it can be restored later.


Name

Description

GetElement

Returns the value of the specified Covariance matrix element.
This method has been Deprecated. Please use Covariance.Matrix() instead, using indices to access elements of the matrix.

GetSmoothedElement

Returns the Smoothed value of the specified Covariance matrix element.
This method has been Deprecated. Please use Covariance.SmoothedMatrix() instead, using indices to access elements of the matrix.
