Status of link closure between first and last node
s — Link closure status
scalar or row vector of logical values
Link closure status, returned as a row vector of logical values. If
timeIn is specified,
s is a row vector,
otherwise, the output is a scalar. The status at a given instant is
true) if the link between first and last node is closed. The link
between the first and last node is closed when the link between each individual pair of
intermediate adjacent nodes in the Sequence
property of the link is closed.
For a given pair, the link is considered to be closed when both nodes belong to the same satellite or ground station.
Otherwise, the link between the pair is closed if the directionality is from a transmitter to a receiver and the energy per bit to noise power spectral density ratio (Eb/No) at the receiver is greater than its
Additionally, if a given node is attached to a ground station directly or via a gimbal, the elevation angle of the adjacent node with respect to the ground station must be greater than or equal to its MinElevationAngle.
timeOut — Time samples of output link status
scalar | vector
Time samples of output link status, returned as a scalar or a vector. If time
history of link status is returned,
timeOut is a row vector.
