The Flight Dynamics operations supported by the current release are:
Ingestion and update of several environment files provided by external agencies and used to model the Earth physical properties (e.g. Earth Orientation Parameters, leap seconds, Solar Flux data etc.)
Propagation of the spacecraft orbit forward and backward in time subject to a set of configurable force models (e.g. geopotential, atmospheric drag, solar radiation pressure, luni-solar perturbations, ocean and solid tides). Additionally, it supports impulsive and finite maneuvers with chemical propulsion.
Prediction of several orbital events (e.g. ascending and descending node crossing times, apogee and perigee crossing times, umbra and penumbra crossing times for Earth and Moon eclipses, ground stations AOS/LOS, South Atlantic Anomaly crossing times, etc.)
Management and visualization of generated FD products (e.g. orbit files, event files, CCSDS OEM, etc.)
