If your field of view defined as a typical solid angle, as shown on Wikipedia, then you'd define the half angles as the half of 100x100: 50x50. STK (and probably other modeling tools) accounts for the visibility of a sensor using a dual-conic model similar to an eclipsing model when assuming spherical celestial objects. Am I missing something?

From what I can tell from the parameters in your screenshots, the program has performed a perfectly valid optimisation. What's more concerning is that the text in you question doesn't match the parameters clearly shown in the screenshots. If there's a configuration page where does values are actually used, why is this not included in the question? The ...

I believe this will work, although I haven't fully tried it out. You should be able to do this on both satellites, or on just one satellite. There may be other ways of doing it as well. I will assume we are only making the changes on one satellite. In your Propagate segment within Astrogator, set up a new "R Magnitude" stopping condition. ...

I was trying to prepare an report for the electric thrust LEOP by STK. This report was going to include satellite x, y , z axes + some other satellite related angles (which were all created by myself using vectors) and finally access times with respect to the five different ground stations separated all around the world to satisfy the LEOP requirements. Even ...

The video look and feel makes me think it was generated by AGI, so you could easily mail support@agi.com The short answer, is that you cannot do it just out of the box. You have to generate pointing data external to STK and feed it in as a .sp file. The external data file could be generated with Matlab, python, or any other tool of your choice. AGI has a ...
