LambertOrbitSolverSolveParabolicTransfer Method (Cartesian, Cartesian, OrbitDirectionType, Cartesian)

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,
	Cartesian orbitalPlaneVector


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.
Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian
A vector that is used in conjunction with the initial position of the spacecraft to define the orbital plane in the case of ambiguity. Typically the velocity at the initial position if known.

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.
