Presentation

Continous integration Continous deployment

IO.Astrodynamics.Net is a .Net astrodynamics framework based on cspice toolkit(N 67) developped by the JPL and IO.Astrodynamics native library, it provides the best of both worlds :

Concept

IO.Astrodynamics is based on Spice concept

To work, this framework needs data (Ephemeris, Planetary constants, leap seconds, mission data, ...) these data can be found here

To use these data in the framework, just call this function :

//Load required kernels for computation
API.Instance.LoadKernels(new DirectoryInfo("<your path containing data>"));

When you use the propagation functionalities, you will have to provide an output path to reuse, if necessary, the data generated in another software.

Installation

This package is hosted by Nuget here. You can install it in your project with this command :

dotnet add package IO.Astrodynamics

Quick start

//LET'S GO !
//In this example we'll get the moon state vector in ICRF frame relative to the earth without aberration

//Load required kernels for computation
API.Instance.LoadKernels(new DirectoryInfo("/home/spacer/Sources/SDK.Net/IO.Astrodynamics.Tests/Data/SolarSystem"));

//Create moon object
var moon = new CelestialBody(PlanetsAndMoons.MOON.NaifId);

//Get moon ephemeris
var ephemeris = moon.GetEphemeris(DateTimeExtension.J2000, moon.InitialOrbitalParameters.CenterOfMotion, Frame.ICRF, Aberration.None).ToStateVector();

//Display some informations
Console.WriteLine($"Position : {ephemeris.Position.ToString()}");
Console.WriteLine($"Velocity : {ephemeris.Velocity.ToString()}");

//You should have the following result : 
// Position : Vector3 { X = -291608384.6334355, Y = -266716833.39423338, Z = -76102487.09990202 }
// Velocity : Vector3 { X = 643.5313877190328, Y = -666.0876840916304, Z = -301.32570498227307 }
