The EJS Ballistics and Orbits model displays ballistic trajectories near the Earth. The model shows the trajectory with respect to the inertial coordinate system and the trajectory as seen from a point of view that is co-rotating with the Earth.
You can examine and modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open EJS Model" from the pop-up menu item.
The Ballistics and Orbits model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_nl_teunissen_ballistics_and_orbits.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
Additional information about this model can be found by visiting the author's web site: http://www.cleonis.nl/index.htm.
Please note that this resource requires
at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
