Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyArgumentOfPeriapsis
Gets the argument of periapsis of the orbit, in radians.
Public propertyArgumentOfPeriapsisRate
Gets the current rate of change of the ArgumentOfPeriapsis, in radians per second.
Public propertyEccentricity
Gets the eccentricity of the orbit.
Public propertyEccentricityRate
Gets the current rate of change of the Eccentricity, in units per second.
Public propertyGravitationalParameter
Gets the gravitational parameter used for this element set (distance cubed per time squared).
Public propertyInclination
Gets the inclination of the orbit, in radians.
Public propertyInclinationRate
Gets the current rate of change of the Inclination, in radians per second.
Public propertyOrbitCount
Gets the number of orbits produced by the propagator from the initial conditions to the current elements.
Public propertyRightAscensionOfAscendingNode
Gets the right ascension of the ascending node of the orbit, in radians.
Public propertyRightAscensionOfAscendingNodeRate
Gets the current rate of change of the RightAscensionOfAscendingNode, in radians per second.
Public propertySemimajorAxis

Public propertySiderealPeriod
Gets the approximate orbit period, in seconds, for the current orbit pass.
Public propertyTimeOfPeriapsis
Gets the time at the periapsis of this orbit pass.
