Workspace Method rte_pos_losForwardToAltitude


Moves rte_pos and rte_los forward to the target altitude.

The method gives the rte_pos and rte_los at the target altitude
when forward-propagating the original rte_pos and rte_los

There is also sensor_pos_losForwardToAltitude. The WSM
IntersectionGeometricalWithAltitude performs the same operation
with sensor_pos and sensor_los as input.
