Real-Time TDRS package – Release 2
Long out of release, This is a re-release of my previous TDRS package. The scenario file has been updated with the latest elements (as of 28 April 2012) and now represents TDRS 4, 6 and 10 satellites. From the original package: “I was wondering, what does the Earth look like from a TDRS satellite? So, here’s the answer; real-time scenario using real world orbital elements. Not a great mesh, just something to represent the satellites. TDRS 4 and 8 are the two represented satellites in this scenario. This is for Orbiter 2005, just unzip into the main Orbiter directory. Engage the “prograde” autopilot mode to point at the Earth.” This package now works with Orbiter 2010… The package has been updated with a fine 3D mesh found at the NASA 3D model site.
