LambertOrbitSolverSolveParabolicTransfer Method (Cartesian, Cartesian, OrbitDirectionType)

Solves the constrained Lambert problem given the input. Solver is constrained to return the parabolic solution.

Namespace:  AGI.Foundation.Propagators
Assembly:  AGI.Foundation.Models (in AGI.Foundation.Models.dll) Version: 23.2.417.0 (23.2.417.0)
public LambertResult SolveParabolicTransfer(
	Cartesian initialPosition,
	Cartesian finalPosition,
	OrbitDirectionType directionOfFlight


Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian
The starting position of the orbit/transfer.
Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian
The ending position of the orbit/transfer.
Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesOrbitDirectionType
Determines if the flight path is prograde or retrograde.

Return Value

Type: LambertResult
The motion at the initial and final positions and the time of flight.

The parabolic solution is useful in providing a minimum bound for the duration of zero-revolution elliptical transfers between the two positions.

This method does not include an orbital plane vector used for transfers spanning π in angle subtended.
