Version 9.2

Version 9.2 is a minor release of Orekit. It introduces several new features and bug fixes.

New features introduced in version 9.2 are :

  • Kalman filter for orbit determination,
  • loading of RINEX files
  • loading of ANTEX files
  • loading of version d of SP3 files (version a to c were already supported)
  • on-the-fly decompression of .Z files
  • code measurements
  • phase measurements (but only a very basic implementation for now)
  • specific attitude laws (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BEIDOU) with midnight/noon turns
  • possibility to use backward propagation in LS orbit determination
  • support for any ITRF version, even if EOP files do not match the desired version
  • attitude overriding in constant thrust maneuvers
  • FunctionalDetector
  • filtering mechanism to insert specific decompression or deciphering algorithms during data loading
  • frames for Lagrange L1 and L2 point for any two related celestial bodies

WARNING: phase measurements, GNSS attitude and time-dependent process noise are considered experimental features for now, they should not be used yet for operational systems.

Several bugs have been fixed.

This version depends on Hipparchus 1.3
