EarthOrientationParametersReadOptions Properties

The EarthOrientationParametersReadOptions type exposes the following members.

Public propertyInterpretTimesUsingLeapSecondsFacet
Gets or sets a value indicating whether times in the EarthOrientationParametersFile should be interpreted using the leap seconds facet. When the value of this property is , the default, CoordinatedUniversalTime (UTC) times in an EOP file are converted to InternationalAtomicTime (TAI) using the difference between the two that is specified in the EOP file itself. This ensures that the absolute time of each EOP sample is as intended by the author of the file. When the value of this property is , the conversion to TAI is done using the list of leap seconds known to the LeapSecondsFacet in the CalculationContext. This is provided for compatibility with older versions of STK Components and other software that interprets the UTC times in an EOP file in this way. Regardless of the value of this property, the leap seconds in the LeapSecondsFacet will be used if the EOP file itself does not contain any information about the difference between TAI and UTC.
