Workspace Method sensor_poslosFromGeodetic


Converts sensor position and LOS from geodetic to geocentric values.

The geodetic position and line-of-sight (LOS) are defined by 
sensor_pos_geodetic and sensor_los_geodetic. The later WSV
is here allowed to be empty (but gives an empty sensor_los).
Otherwise the number of rows in the two WSVs must agree.

So far only 3D is handled.

sensor_poslosFromGeodetic( sensor_pos, sensor_los, sensor_pos_geodetic, sensor_los_geodetic, refellipsoid )


OUTsensor_pos(Matrix)The sensor position for each measurement block.
OUTsensor_los(Matrix)The sensor line-of-sight (LOS) for each measurement block.
INsensor_pos_geodetic(Matrix)As sensor_pos but using geodetic coordinates.
INsensor_los_geodetic(Matrix)As sensor_los but matching geodetic coordinates.
INrefellipsoid(Vector)Reference ellipsoid.
