Kepler Orbit

KEPLER orbits are used to build a trajectory for space vehicles. The RSG trajectory editor's Command Editor offers a KEPLER trajectory that is – as all Keplerian orbits are – described by six parameters. These standard parameters make speed and heading change calculations unnecessary, but their specifications are beyond the scope of this documentation, and hence are not further described herein.

Note: The preferred way to describe space vehicle trajectories are TLE-formatted trajectories, see Trajectory Two-Line Element Format (TLE).
