Atmosphere & Ionosphere Editor


In order to specify the “Atmosphere/Ionosphere” application related input, the user opens either an *.atmosphere- or *.ionosphere-file in the editor shown in the figure below.

Both editors for Atmosphere and Ionosphere have the same structure, containing four pages:

  • Model-Display: a model display analysis provides atmosphere (or ionosphere) and wind characteristics such as number of density and temperature from the models.
  • Environment and Analysis: properties for the models, solar activity and the particle types used for geometric and non-geometric analyses.
  • Geometric: configuration of the number of rays, spinning and multiple reflection for the geometric analysis.
  • Non-geometrical analysis: parameters for the fixed (in-orbit oriented) plate analysis.
