- What is the difference between propagation using
AbsolutePVCoordinatesvs propagation using
- What are some practical reasons why I would choose to propagate using each of these different classes? Can you give me an example of some situations when one representation would have an advantage over another? Cartesian coordinates seem like the obvious choice to me.
My use case: I am a first-time Orekit user setting up a numerical propagator using a 20x20 gravity field, sun and moon perturbations, and an atmospheric model for drag. I’m interested in propagating satellites in LEO.
