Calculate Range

Calculate range between two crafts given their respective positions

Library

GNC/Guidance

Description

The Calculate Range block computes the range between two crafts. The equation used for the range calculation is

Range=(x1x2)2+(y1y2)2+(z1z2)2

Inputs and Outputs

InputDimension TypeDescription
First Contains the (x, y and z) position of craft 1.
Second Contains the (x, y and z) position of craft 2.

OutputDimension TypeDescription
First Contains the range from craft 2 and craft 1.

Limitation

The calculated range is the magnitude of the distance, but not the direction. Therefore it is always positive or zero.

Craft positions are real values.
