SolarSystem.COUpdateInterval Property

Top 

Description

Update method applied when reading Celestial Object position and velocity information from the planetary forces file (e.g., DE430).

 

A value of zero will cause the position and velocity to be updated to the full accuracy supplied. This is the instantaneous mode. This mode is recommended.

 

A positive value will cause the position and velocity to be updated to the nearest specified seconds. This is the quantitized mode. This mode may introduce discontinuities in the Celestial Object modeling and is not recommended.

 

A negative value will cause the position and velocity to be updated when the requested reading deviates by more that the absolute value in seconds from the previous update. This is the hysteresis mode. This mode may introduce discontinuities in the Celestial Object modeling and is not recommended.
