The Space Network plugin recreates the Network of Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System and Ground Tracking Station for both near Earth communication and Deep Space communication and simulate interaction of the current vehicle in the simulation with the Network.
- Works with every vessel in Orbiter
- Adds realism to the simulation
- Easy to use
- Creates two antennas for every vehicle and calculate the signal for each of them in different manner
- Already contains data for the real major tracking stations, deep space network stations and TDRS satellite
- Display also information and coverage areas on the earth's map
- Bases and satellites fully customizable
- High gain antenna direction customizable for every vessel in Orbiter
- Compute also Loss of signal in orbits around celestial bodies different than Earth
Information for ground stations and TDRS were found on internet (wikipedia and Nasa websites).
