TerrainAvoidanceProfile Class

A profile that defines the height and speed necessary to transition from an initial height and speed to a final height and speed while attempting to maintain a minimum height above intervening terrain. This is useful when modeling low altitude aircraft trajectories in areas where the terrain varies significantly between waypoints.

The TerrainAvoidanceProfile type exposes the following members.

Constructors
Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyAllowModificationOfFinalHeight
Gets or sets a flag indicating whether the profile can update the final height in the course of configuring itself in relation to the surrounding profiles.
Public propertyAllowModificationOfInitialHeight
Gets or sets a flag indicating whether the profile can update the initial height in the course of configuring itself in relation to the surrounding profiles.
Public propertyDynamics
Gets or sets the set of parameters specifying the achievable accelerations during the profile.
Public propertyFinalHeightAboveTerrain
Gets or sets the final height above the terrain, in meters.
Public propertyInitialHeightAboveTerrain
Gets or sets the initial height above the terrain, in meters.
Public propertyMinimumHeightAboveTerrain
Gets or sets the minimum height at which to traverse above the terrain, in meters.
Public propertySamplingDistance
Gets or sets the rate at which to sample the terrain, in meters. A smaller sampling distance will result in fewer violations of the minimum height. Whereas, a larger sampling distance will be faster. The sampling distance should reflect how quickly the terrain height is changing over the surface region in which the corresponding procedure occurs.
Public propertySpeed
Gets or sets the speed at which to traverse over the terrain.
Public propertyTerrain
Gets or sets the terrain over which to traverse.

Remarks

The following figure shows the behavior of a particular route profile. Note how the profile will find the convex hull and maintain height in between the peaks.
