Workspace Method sensor_losGeometricFromSensorPosToOtherPositions


The geometric line-of-sight between pair of points.

The method sets sensor_los to the line-of-sights, that matches the
geometrical propagation path from sensor_pos to *target_pos*. This
is done for pair of positions, i.e. the two matrices shall have the same
number of rows. The number of columns in *target_pos* shall be two for
1D and 2D and two for 3D, exactly as for rte_pos2.

See also rte_losGeometricFromRtePosToRtePos2. This method calls that
method for each pair of positions, where values in sensor_pos matches
*rte_pos and values in *target_pos* matches rte_pos2.
