Class BaseAttitudeDataServer<A extends IAttitude>

Type Parameters:
A - type of Attitude that the server is serving
Direct Known Subclasses:
AnalyticalAttitudeDataServer, NumericalAttitudeDataServer

public abstract class BaseAttitudeDataServer<A extends IAttitude> extends Object
Common base class for all attitude data servers. This holds all common fields e.g. the time origin for relative time scales (in ns) and implements getAttitude(long) in terms of getAttitude(long) which is the same for all servers. The time context and its possible switch is implemented in a thread-safe manner. Derived classes should hence be likewise thread-safe.
  • Field Details

    • initialized

      protected boolean initialized
      Some scanning laws have constants or tables for interpolation that need to be computed before the first use and recomputed after changing certain reference values. This flag indicates that the constants or tables (whatever applicable) are up to date.
    • nativeTimeContext

      protected TimeContext nativeTimeContext
      native and initially requested time context of the server - has to be set by the implementing class
    • initialRequestedTimeContext

      protected TimeContext initialRequestedTimeContext
    • withUncertaintiesCorrelations

      protected boolean withUncertaintiesCorrelations
      switch to decide if attitude uncertainties and correlations should be calculated
