Geostationary Earth Orbit Satellite Model
written by Loo Kang Wee
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.
