orbit (orbit-3.0) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]
- This task simply converts some of the available Orbit parameters
from their current ODF ascii format (as a Spacecraft Reconstructed Orbit
File). It is assumed these positional and velocity parameters can be
better accessed in FITS for constructing possible GTI's.
- This task also converts the Geocentric Equatorial Inertial (GEI)
in km to Geosynchronous Solar Ecliptic (GSE) in km to facilitate the
NASA/GSFC Trend Data construction.
- It is not clear the usefulness of the orbit file for barycentric
correction but it is clear this file should be presented in a format
that maximizes using preexisting software to calculate such values
FROM this file.
