This paper presents a new way to deal with attitude modeling. It is designed to be able to handle highly accurate models with very complex settings while remaining simple to use, even for non attitude specialists. The representation is split in several layers, for greater flexibility and thereby provides an extensive range of attitude profiles. The...

This paper presents a new way to deal with transition matrices handling in variational equations. While working simultaneously on several problems dealing with orbit propagation: low-thrust trajectories and orbit determination, we implemented a feature allowing to add user equations to a propagator in order to solve the first problem. Then it appea...

... Orekit is a open source software library for space flight dynamics. 10,11 It includes the ability to model standard astrodynamical elements such as orbits, time systems and reference frames. The algorithms necessary to make use of these elements, such as frame conversions, time conversion and various orbit propagation methods, are included as well. ...
