SpacecraftCovariance.MapErrorEllipsoid(ProximityZone, Variable) Method
Determines the orientation and size of the Error Ellipsoid by calculating the Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors of the 3x3 position Covariance.
The probability that a random 3-dimensional vector is inside a k-sigma iso-probability ellipsoid is:
This is different from evaluating the probability of a single component of a 3-dimensional vector given the uncertainty in the axis of that component (which follows the typical 1-dimensional Gaussian form). The k-sigma values for traditional confidence intervals, including those related to 1, 2, and 3 sigma values, are given in the k-sigma description below.
