GroundStation Object

Top  Previous  Next


A GroundStation is a tracking station used for determining line of sight contact with a Spacecraft. GroundStation Objects can be placed on any built-in or custom Celestial Body Objects. It is used to compute contact duration, antenna pointing, acquisition of signal (AOS), and loss of signal (LOS) information with a Spacecraft. See the Coverage and Contact Analysis guide for more information. You can assign GroundStation objects using the = operator. This will equalize the GroundStations' properties, but not the properties of the attached GroundAntenna objects.
