Description
This method provides a sequential listing of events related to the intersection of two objects, where one object moves to at least partially intersect another object. The objects can be a Spacecraft and a ProximityZone or a ProximityZone and a ProximityZone. The start times, end times, ranges at start and end, and duration of the intersection are returned. FreeFlyer uses a definitive analytical solution to evaluate this method.
Timing Precision Mode
This page describes functionality in millisecond timing precision mode. Millisecond timing precision mode is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. We recommend that you migrate your Mission Plans to nanosecond timing precision mode.
