## LambertOrbitSolverSolveParabolicTransfer Method (Cartesian, Cartesian, OrbitDirectionType, Cartesian) |

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

Syntax

public LambertResult SolveParabolicTransfer( Cartesian initialPosition, Cartesian finalPosition, OrbitDirectionType directionOfFlight, Cartesian orbitalPlaneVector )

- initialPosition
- Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian

The starting position of the orbit/transfer. - finalPosition
- Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesCartesian

The ending position of the orbit/transfer. - directionOfFlight
- Type: AGI.Foundation.CoordinatesOrbitDirectionType

Determines if the flight path is prograde or retrograde. - orbitalPlaneVector
- 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.

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

Remarks

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