17.2.7 Other configuration options

Given an initial configuration of satellites specified for time $0$, it is possible to start the satellite configuration from any arbitrary point in time through the use of the time_advance_ parameter (this is really only useful for LEO simulations). During the simulation run, this will set the position of the object to the position at time Scheduler::instance().clock + time_advance_ seconds.

Position/Sat set time_advance_ 0; # seconds
