AxesNorthEastDownComputeFixedToNorthEastDownRotation Method (Ellipsoid, Cartesian)

Computes the rotation from the central body's fixed axes to a set of north-east-down axes based on a specified reference point. In these axes, the X axis points toward the local North, the Y axis points toward the local East, and the Z axis points down (opposite the surface normal).
