Syntax
public Motion<Cartesian> Solve(
	Cartesian position1,
	Cartesian position2,
	Cartesian position3,
	JulianDate time1,
	JulianDate time2,
	JulianDate time3
)

Parameters

position1
Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian
The first position in the orbit.
position2
Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian
The second position in the orbit.
position3
Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian
The third position in the orbit.
time1
Type: AGI.Foundation.TimeJulianDate
The time recorded when the first position position1 was measured.
time2
Type: AGI.Foundation.TimeJulianDate
The time recorded when the second position position2 was measured.
time3
Type: AGI.Foundation.TimeJulianDate
The time recorded when the third position position3 was measured.

Return Value

Type: MotionCartesian
The motion for position2, that determines the orbit.
Exceptions
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentExceptionThrown if any of the input positions are Zero or Undefined. Also thrown if the times are not in strictly increasing order.
