I start to work with GMAT. I am looking into the API capabilites and I found several functions e.g. for the calculation of SSO Orbit Parameters, or Repeating Ground Tracks.

So apart from this, is there a mechanic implemented allowing to generate orbit parameters for specific requirements. Like the "Orbit Designer" which was presten in release version 2012 (!), where you could enter some parameters aimed for and GMAT calculated a suitable orbit.

Thanks in advance!

    $\begingroup$ Could you provide an example of what you'd like to achieve? Typically, the design of an orbit to meet specific characteristics is the role of an astrodynamics engineer. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ gmat.sourceforge.net/docs/R2020a/api/userguide/… says "navigation.jar - Orbit determination components" - not sure if that might contain what you're looking for? $\endgroup$
