* <p> Semi-analytical propagation in Orekit is based on Draper Semi-analytical
* Satellite Theory (DSST), which is applicable to all orbit types. DSST divides
* the computation of the osculating orbital elements into two contributions: the
* mean orbital elements and the short-periodic terms. Both models are developed

* elements are computed numerically while short period motion is computed using
* a combination of analytical and numerical techniques.
