OARIS21 — sensor_orientation_type is missing a rotation angle

  • Key: OARIS21-56
  • Status: open  
  • Source: RTX ( Dr. David Bainbridge)
  • Summary:

    The sensor orientation message reports the orientation of the sensor with two angles: azimuth and elevation. But to completely describe orientation, three angles are required. The missing angle is a rotation about the normal from the array. It can becalled a clocking angle. Using azimuth and elevation correspond to Cardan angles, which describe orientation as heading, elevation, and bank. The missing angle in this system is the bank angle.
