OREKIT (ORbits Extrapolation KIT) is a free low-level space dynamics library written in Java.
Orekit aims at providing accurate and efficient low level components for the development of flight dynamics applications. It is designed to be easily used in very different contexts, from quick studies up to critical operations.
As a library, Orekit provides basic elements (orbits, dates, attitude, frames, …) and various algorithms to handle them (conversions, propagations, pointing, …).
This module includes all Orekit and Hipparchus
.jars for use in all Ignition scripting contexts. Classes are mounted under
The Orekit library relies on external data for physical models; this module allows an Ignition gateway to provide this data to connected clients on an as-needed basis.
Local caching is provided in order to reduce network load.
