Description

This property has been Deprecated. Please use Spacecraft.OrbitNumberCumulative instead.

 

Returns the number of times a Spacecraft has orbited the central body (revolutions). It is incremented each time the spacecraft crosses the ascending node. For an orbit inclination close to zero degrees, ScOrbitNumber is incremented based on orbital period. In the case of backwards propagation, ScOrbitNumber is decremented as above.
