The Geostationary Earth Orbit Satellite Model is a simple angular velocity model that uses Java3D for a realistic visualization of satellites in geostationary orbits. Students can view and explore the behavior of geostationary orbits, non-geostationary orbits, and non-physical orbits. This model tests the Java 3D  implementation of the EJS 3D library.  A warning message will appear if the Java 3D library is not available.

The Geostationary Earth Orbit Satellite Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.   Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the map and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.

Please note that this resource requires Java3D.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).

Geostationary Earth Orbit Satellite Model:

Is Based On Easy Java Simulations Modeling and Authoring Tool

The Easy Java Simulations Modeling and Authoring Tool is needed to explore the computational model used in the Geostationary Earth Orbit Satellite Model.

relation by Wolfgang Christian
Is Version Of Geostationary Satellite around Earth Model

this is shared model in the OSP digital library.
thanks to Prof Paco for EJS and an earlier model that is resource is based on.

relation by wee lookang
Is Referenced By Ejs Open Source Earth and Moon Model

Ejs Open Source Earth and Moon Model is by Professor Francisco Esquembre aka Paco for which this resource is created/remixed from.
thanks Prof Paco!

relation by wee lookang
Is Based On Examples Earth and Moon 3 D

This program shows the Moon revolving around the Earth. The model is not real since the example is just to show the new Java 3D-based visualization capabilities of EJS.
