// Given an XYZ coord in the KSP native coord system, // calculate the same coord in terms of the ENU // system (ENU is a term I made up for: // "East North Up". It's the system with an origin // point on the surface of the SOI body directly // beneath the vessel, and with X=east, Y=north, // and Z=up. // // Because you can't pass things into or out of // a program, global variables must be used here // to simulate that. // INPUT: x,y,z,e,n,u // OUTPUT: tfE,tfN,tfU as global variables. // (As of KOS 0.65 there is no way to return a // value or pass a variable by reference so globals // have to be used for the return values.) // // All "local" variables begin with "tf" to help // prevent them from clashing with the other // variables you might have used in the global // namespace of KOS.

declare parameter tfX,tfY,tfZ.

// Rotation angles for rotation matrix: set tfA to latitude. set tfCosA to cos(tfA). set tfSinA to sin(tfA).

set tfB to (0 - up:yaw). // use UP:yaw like it was longitude set tfCosB to cos(tfB). set tfSinB to sin(tfB).

// The rotation matrix around z axis (latitude) then y axis (longitude): set tfW to tfX*tfCosB + 0 + tfZ*tfSinB . set tfN to tfX*tfSinA*tfSinB + tfY*tfCosA + tfZ*(0-tfSinA*tfCosB) . set tfU to tfX*(0-tfCosA*tfSinB) + tfY*tfSinA + tfZ*tfCosA*tfCosB .

// Native XYZ is left-handed-system. BUT ENU matches the // Lat/Lon system which is right-handed. So the above rotation // is calculated for a westerly axis then flipped to east here: set tfE to 0 - tfW.
