Satellite Slant Range Calculator
This page of converters and calculators section covers Satellite Slant Range calculator. The distance of satelite from Ground station i.e. Altitude, Distance between geocenter and GND Station i.e. Earth radius and Earth station elevation angle are inputs to this slant range calculator. The output is slant range.
Slant Range Calculator EXAMPLE:
Distance between GND Station & satellite (i.e. Altitude), h (Km) = 35786 Km
Distance between geocenter & GND Station, B (Km) = 6378 Km
Elevation Angle in degree, ε = 90
Note: Internally distance between Geocenter and Satellite (r) is sum of altitude(h) and Earth radius(B).
Satellite Slant Range in Km = 35786
