Augmented Reality (AR) is a cutting-edge technology that can improve industry, healthcare, commerce, entertainment, and most importantly, education.
Augmented reality is a combination of the real world and additional data "embedded" in the field of perception. Thanks to this technology, students will be able to visually study near-earth space, the orbits of satellites and their types, observe the current location of the spacecraft and its movement.
The augmented reality (AR) hardware and software complex for Terra consists of a tablet and an application and has the following functionality:
1) Visualization of satellite flight
- display of satellites near Terra in real time, scrolling time within a day;
- adding satellites in orbit by their Norad-ID (Satellite Catalog Number);
- display of the orbit of the selected satellite (in the non-inertial ECEF system): ground path of the orbit and the orbit itself, time stamps;
- visualized the satellite visibility area (reception area);
- 4 forms of visualization of the satellite apparatus are available to choose from: 1U, 3U, 6U and Meteor-2 cubesats. ISS is presented separately;
- visualization of the receiving station by its coordinates (with a name) is available;
- visualization of the remote sensing process (based on the Meteor-2 satellite).
2) Visualization of the Earth's magnetic field
- field form;
- the relative position of the magnetic field axis and the Earth's axis of rotation;
- Brazilian and Cape Town magnetic anomaly;
- Van Allen radiation belts;
3) Visualization of Keplerian orbital elements (with the ability to interactively change them)
- semi-major axis;
- longitude of the ascending node (ascending node);
- for 0 <ε <1 - perigee, apogee (pericenter, apocenter);
- the argument of the periapsis (or longitude of the periapsis);
- true anomaly;
- visualization of speed changes for elliptical orbits;
- visualization of the main types of orbits around the Earth;
- circular, elliptical, parabola, hyperbola;
- sun-synchronous orbit, polar, Molniya.
The program also includes functionality that allows not only visualizing objects, but also visually showing:
- Principles of working with MCC (visibility zone, number of sessions, satellite height above the station, etc.).
- Difference between inertial coordinate system (ECI) and non-inertial coordinate system (ECEF) (by the example of comparing the results of the first stage with the last one - visualization of Keplerian elements).
- Principles of satellite engineering for satellites with orbits up to 700-1000 km (for example, the module about the magnetic field).
- The principle of orientation in space by the magnetic field and the Sun (for example, the module about the magnetic field).
- The principle of remote sensing (visual lessons are assumed in the presence of the Bindweed \ Curvature station - reception and decoding of the image with the visual component of AR).
A large layer of lessons on orbital ballistics: Keplerian elements, TLE, the relationship between the latitude of the cosmodrome and the inclination of the orbit, etc.
