Spacecraft.SimulateTrackingData(TDRSObservation, Variable) Method

Top 

Description

This method simulates TDRS data whenever the calling Spaceceraft is in view of the TDRS Relay Spacecraft. A nadir-pointing Sensor must be added to the TDRS Relay Spacecraft.

 

Timing Precision Mode

This page describes functionality in nanosecond timing precision mode.

 

Method Signature

Spacecraft.SimulateTrackingData(

TDRSObservation tdrsObservation,


Variable exclusionHeight)

 

Arguments

tdrsObservation


Description:

The TDRS Observation to be populated with simulated data.

 

exclusionHeight


Description:

The height above the limb of the Earth, below which all signals passing the Earth will be excluded.

Units:

km

Valid Range:

exclusionHeight ≥ 0

 

 

Return Value

Type:

number

 

Returns 1 if data was successfully simulated, 0 if no data was simulated due to a visibility restriction, such as an occulting body or sensor mask. When simulating multiple Pseudorange Observations, this method returns the number simulated.

 

Syntax

myVariable1 = mySpacecraft1.SimulateTrackingData(myTDRSObservation1, myVariable2);
