Aero Assist will be sponsoring a seminar on theÂ Orbit Determination Toolbox (ODTBX). The ODTBX is an analysis toolset based on the integration of MATLAB and existing astrodynamics software developed by NASA Goddard Space Flight Centerâ€™s Navigation and Mission Design Branch.Â It provides a flexible architecture for early mission analysis by facilitating the implementation of new measurement and dynamic models from a library of base classes.Â A Java Astrodynamics Toolbox is used as an engine for things that might be slow or inefficient in MATLAB, like high-fidelity trajectory propagation, lunar and planetary ephemeris lookups, precession, nutation, polar motion calculations etc.Â The primary analysis functions are sequential filter/smoother and batch least-squares commands that incorporate monte-carlo data simulation, linear covariance analysis, measurement processing, and plotting capabilities at the generic level. These functions have a user interface that is based on that of the MATLAB ODE suite.
