Description

Converts the Spacecraft's orbital state from one element set to another, and returns the results in array form. The order of the elements for each element set are listed below (using the Spacecraft properties):

 

- CARTESIAN: X, Y, Z, VX, VY, VZ

- KEPLERIAN: A, E, I, RAAN, W, TA

- NONSINGULAR_KEPLERIAN: NonSingularA, NonSingularE1, NonSingularE2, NonSingularE3, NonSingularE4, NonSingularE5

- EQUINOCTIAL: EquinoctialA, EquinoctialH, EquinoctialK, EquinoctialP, EquinoctialQ, EquinoctialLongitude

- BROUWER_MEAN: BL_A, BL_E, BL_I, BL_RAAN, BL_W, BL_MA

- J2_BROUWER_MEAN: BLJ2A, BLJ2E, BLJ2I, BLJ2RAAN, BLJ2W, BLJ2MA

- SPHERICAL: SphericalRadius, RA, DEC, Vi, SphericalAzimuth, VerticalFPA

- SPHERICAL_LATLONG: LatLongRadius, Latitude, Longitude, LatLongVi, LatLongAzimuth, HorizontalFPA

- NORAD_ELEMENT_TYPE: NoradI, NoradRAAN, NoradE, NoradW, NoradMA, NoradMeanMotion

- MODIFIED_EQUINOCTIAL: ModifiedEquinoctialP, ModifiedEquinoctialF, ModifiedEquinoctialG, ModifiedEquinoctialH, ModifiedEquinoctialK, ModifiedEquinoctialL

 

Note, when used to convert an element set into Norad elements this function is not compatible with the SGP4/SDP4 propagator.
