Orbit Calculator

Project Description

Create Renderings and animations of orbits. Any combination of inputs can be used as long as enough are entered to complete the calculations. Displays calculated values in the relevant input textboxes. Two renderings of the orbit offering differents viewing angles are produced, and an animation of the orbit.

Technical Highlights

Possible Applications

The program could be used as a teaching tool or a validation tool. It of course has limitations for real world use in Astrodynamics but for first order calculations it is accurate.

These animation were designed to help develop the algorithms for animating orbits. They were developed in Java but translated to JavaScript so they could be used here. They illustrate my engineering project explained in the about me section in the main portfolio.
