What is it?

Aerospace Blockset is an external Scilab module providing aerospace palette for Xcos. It is based on CelestLab aerospace library and allows to:

  • simulate position of Earth's satellites and visualise it on groundtrack plot
  • calculate and visualise ground station access times
  • calculate and visualize azimuth and elevation of a satellite over a ground station
  • simulate position of the Sun, Moon and the Planets
  • estimate basic atmosphere properties depending on altitude
  • model eclipses, atmospheric and solar drag
  • perform time frame and reference frame conversions
  • perform basic operations on vectors
  • perform algebraic operations on quaternions and use them to represent attitude
  • convert between different units
