access

Add access analysis objects to satellite scenario

Description

example

access(asset1,asset2,...) adds Access analysis objects defined by nodes asset1, asset2, and so on.

ac = access(___,'Viewer',Viewer) sets the viewer in addition to any input argument combination from previous syntaxes. For example, 'Viewer',v1 picks the viewer v1.

ac = access(___) returns added access analysis objects in the row vector ac.

Examples

Create satellite scenario and add ground stations from latitudes and longitudes.

startTime = datetime(2020, 5, 1, 11, 36, 0);
stopTime = startTime + days(1);
sampleTime = 60;
sc = satelliteScenario(startTime, stopTime, sampleTime);
lat = [10];
lon = [-30];
gs = groundStation(sc, lat, lon);

Add satellites using Keplerian elements.

semiMajorAxis = 10000000;
eccentricity = 0;
inclination = 10; 
rightAscensionOfAscendingNode = 0; 
argumentOfPeriapsis = 0; 
trueAnomaly = 0; 
sat = satellite(sc, semiMajorAxis, eccentricity, inclination, ...
        rightAscensionOfAscendingNode, argumentOfPeriapsis, trueAnomaly);

Add access analysis to the scenario and obtain the table of intervals of access between the satellite and the ground station.

ac = access(sat, gs);
intvls = accessIntervals(ac)
intvls=8×8 table

Input Arguments

collapse all

Satellite, GroundStation, or ConicalSensors object, specified as a scalar or vector. These objects must belong to the same satelliteScenario object. The function adds the access analysis object to the Accesses property of the corresponding asset in asset1.

  • If the asset in a given node is a scalar, every analysis object uses the same asset for that node position.

  • If the asset in a given node is a vector, its length must equal the number of access analysis objects. Each access analysis object uses the corresponding element of the asset vector for that node location.

Satellite scenario viewer, specified as a scalar, vector, or array of satelliteScenarioViewer objects. If the AutoSimulate property of the scenario is false, adding a satellite to the scenario disables any previously available timeline and playback widgets.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Access analysis between input objects, returned as either a scalar or vector.

Note

When the AutoSimulate property is set to false, SimulationStatus must be NotStarted to call access function. Otherwise, use the restart function to reset the SimulationStatus to NotStarted. Note that restart also erases the simulation data.
