Odyssey Conjunction Graphics Display

Figure 4 – Odyssey Conjunction Graphics Display

If the control variable ConjunctionGraphics is set to 1, Odyssey will display conjunctions in its live interactive 3D display. Cameras can be flown in 6DOF through several reference frames. The reference frame in Figure 4 above is the LVLH frame. In the screen grab RSOs are colored the usual gold-orange to represent MLI. Any pair of RSOs for which Odyssey has found a conjunction is connected by a blue line. If the magnitude of that connection line falls below a pre-selected range threshold, the conjunction is near and the line turns red. “FastCon” is a preliminary capability and Schafer programmers are considering other options to make graphic display of conjunctions easier to understand and thus enhance Space Situational Awareness.
