Initial behavior of DSST according to DSSTCentralBody force model initialization
My problem is related to the initialization or not of the
DSSTCentralBody force model before launching the propagation.
In the tutorial, there is no call to the "Initialize" method of DSSTCentralBody before starting the propagation. But, in the online documentation, it's written that "This method has to be triggered just before the first propagation".
When I added a call to this method, the propagation was completely different: I wasn't expecting such behavior.
Is there a misunderstanding from my side on the configuration of DSST in Orekit?
Attached to this report, you will find the 2 plots (one with a call to "initialize" and one without) and the java source code used.
