public LifetimeOrbitPropagator()
public Object clone(CopyContext context)
This method should be implemented to call a copy constructor on the class of the
object being cloned. The copy constructor should take the CopyContext
as a parameter
in addition to the existing instance to copy. The copy constructor should first call
CopyContext.addObjectMapping(T, T)
to identify the newly constructed instance
as a copy of the existing instance. It should then copy all fields, using
CopyContext.updateReference(T)
to copy any reference fields.
A typical implementation of ICloneWithContext
:
public static class MyClass implements ICloneWithContext {
public MyClass(MyClass existingInstance, CopyContext context) {
context.addObjectMapping(existingInstance, this);
someReference = context.updateReference(existingInstance.someReference);
}
@Override
public final Object clone(CopyContext context) {
return new MyClass(this, context);
}
private Object someReference;
}
In general, all fields that are reference types should be copied with a call to
CopyContext.updateReference(T)
. There are a couple of exceptions:
CopyContext
should be given an opportunity
to update the reference before the reference is copied explicitly. Use
CopyContext.updateReference(T)
to update the reference. If CopyContext.updateReference(T)
returns
the original object (that is, if the reference some field is equal to the reference of the same field of another instance))
then copy the object manually by invoking a Clone method, a copy constructor, or by manually
constructing a new instance and copying the values.
alwaysCopy = context.updateReference(existingInstance.alwaysCopy);
if (existingInstance.alwaysCopy != null && alwaysCopy == existingInstance.alwaysCopy) {
alwaysCopy = (AlwaysCopy) existingInstance.alwaysCopy.clone(context);
}
If you are implementing an evaluator (a class that implements IEvaluator
), the
IEvaluator.updateEvaluatorReferences(agi.foundation.infrastructure.CopyContext)
method shares some responsibilities with the
copy context constructor. Code duplication can be avoided by doing the following:
CopyContext.updateReference(T)
. You should still call CopyContext.updateReference(T)
on any references to
nonevaluators.
IEvaluator.updateEvaluatorReferences(agi.foundation.infrastructure.CopyContext)
as the last line in the constructor and pass it the
same CopyContext
passed to the constructor.
IEvaluator.updateEvaluatorReferences(agi.foundation.infrastructure.CopyContext)
as normal. See the reference documentation for
IEvaluator.updateEvaluatorReferences(agi.foundation.infrastructure.CopyContext)
for more information on implementing that method.
public MyClass(MyClass existingInstance, CopyContext context) {
super(existingInstance, context);
someReference = context.updateReference(existingInstance.someReference);
evaluatorReference = existingInstance.evaluatorReference;
updateEvaluatorReferences(context);
}
@Override
public void updateEvaluatorReferences(CopyContext context) {
evaluatorReference = context.updateReference(evaluatorReference);
}
@Override
public Object clone(CopyContext context) {
return new MyClass(this, context);
}

this parameter directly affects the performance of the propagator as well as the accuracy of its results.
The drag integration routine is performed by N 9point Gaussian quadratures per orbit, where N is the number set here.
By default, this is set to 6 to ensure accuracy, but can be lowered to improve performance. To determine lifetime,
the routine approximately integrates the slowly varying orbit elements over time. It does this by integrating
over one orbit to determine the rateofchange of each variable, and then assumes this rate is constant for N number of
OrbitsPerCalculation
(get
/ set
). The integration of 1 orbit is done over N subarcs when N is the number of quadratures.
The subarcs are of constant angular measure (in true anomaly, not time). To increase accuracy, make N larger.
Each subarc is integrated using a 9point Gaussian quadrature (i.e. there are 9 sample points within each subarc).
Highly eccentric satellites, which are in higher drag regimes for very short times compared with their period will need
to take much higher numbers of gaussian quadratures to ensure that drag is sampled adequately.public final void setNumberOfGaussianQuadratures(int value)
