I am going to be adding Orekit to an existing project so that I can use the AbsoluteDate class to handle leap seconds, with the potential of using other aspects of Orekit in the same application in the future.
I would like to use the existing leap second files we have currently in the system rather than having to import/regenerate the tai-utc.dat file. However, I can’t quite wrap my brain around how I would override the activity of TAIUTCDatFilesLoader.parser() to parse while still using AbsoluteDate.
Can anyone point me in the direction of how I would go about doing this?
For reference, the file I wish to load is the LeapSecond.dat file provided by AGI for their software.
