How can I determine a rotation matrix from unit vectors?
I want to determine the rotation matrix from which compute the Euler Angles to rotate my spacecraft in order to point in a specific direction. For example, i want the z body axis of the spacecraft to ...
Determine Yaw, Pitch, Roll from two vectors
I need to find the roll, pitch an yaw rotation to point a satellite to a precise point on Earth. I know the satellite position and velocity in ECEF coordinates, the position of the site on Earth (also ...
Satellite's EO sensor footprint on ground
I'm a student and I'm trying to compute the footprint of a generic EO sensor starting from sensor's characteristics and position and velocity vector of my satellite in ECEF coordinates. I followed ...
Rotation matrix / coordinate transformation of maneuver parameters from Prograde, Normal, Radial to Cartesian XYZ?
Say I have a state vector and Keplerian elements of an orbiting spacecraft: Position = [x, y, z] Velocity = [vx, vy, vz] Elements = [a, e, i, $\omega$, $\Omega$, $\nu$] And I have the maneuver I ...
Converting J2000 to ECEF?
Say I get the orbital elements for the ISS from JPL Horizons. Say that data is expressed in J2000, an inertial frame. I want to express it in ECEF. This is a simple rotation transform. All I need is ...
