Description

The Besselian Epoch to Julian Epoch block transforms two 3-by-1 vectors of Besselian Epoch position (r¯B1950), and Besselian Epoch velocity (v¯B1950) into Julian Epoch position (r¯J2000), and Julian Epoch velocity (v¯J2000). The transformation is calculated using:

[r¯J2000v¯J2000]=[M¯rrM¯vrM¯rvM¯vv][r¯B1950v¯B1950]

where (M¯rr,M¯vr,M¯rv,Mvv) are defined as:
