Workspace Method sensor_responseBeamSwitching


Simulation of "beam switching".

The measurement procedure is based on taking the difference between
two spectra measured in different directions, and the calculation
set-up must treat exactly two observation directions.

The returned spectrum is y = w1*y + w2*y2, where y1 and w1 are the
spectrum and weight for the first direction, respectively (y2 and
(w2 defined correspondingly for the second direction).

Zenith and azimuth angles after beam switching are set to the
values of the second direction.
