Hi all,

I am working on maneuver detection and I could use your help.

Here is my work : I have a known maneuver at a time t and two SP vectors, one before the date of the maneuver and one after. I have to detect this maneuver and to have the `Delta_V`

and the duration `Delta_t`

. So what I am doing is that I propagate forward the state before the maneuver and the state after backward. I assume constant acceleration `a=+/-Delta_V/2Delta_t`

. I would like to find the `Delta_V`

and `Delta_t`

that minimize the distance `d=f(Delta_t, Delta_V)`

between the states. First question, am I in the good way ?

To minimize this, what I was thinking is to initiate a maneuver into the propagator using the class `ConstantThrustManeuver`

and to iterate with different values of `Delta_t`

and `Delta_V`

until the distance reaches a minimum.

Do you think could be possible ?

Thank you very much.
