I have implemented a field propagation class similar to FieldPropagation.java in the Orekit tutorials by Andrea Antolino. It works great and it saves me a lot of time compared to running Monte Carlo simulations.
I am trying to expand the class to include uncertainties in the force models. For the time being I would like to study the effect of uncertainties in the drag coefficient on the orbit of a spacecraft.
Is this feasible?
I looked at using the field version of the IsotropicDrag class with the drag coefficient as a derivative structure variable but I am stuck. I was planning to use the field version of IsotropicDrag force in my step handler but I couldn’t figure out how.
Do you have any suggestions or can you point me to an example?
Thank you and best regards,
