Playing with SaVi again
I've added a simulation of the NeLS constellation to my SaVi satellite visualization software . This was prompted by stumbling across papers that used NeLS as the basis for analysing the effects of overlap of satellite coverage areas on the use of intersatellite links in a mesh constellation -- papers based on the work in Chapter 7 of my PhD thesis and my 2001 AIAA diversity paper.
As I never got around to fleshing out that work with a journal paper, it was pleasing to eventually discover that someone else had done so, copying my simulation method and validating my results.
(My PhD thesis has been cited fifty times now, which is either a reflection of being useful to others, or of just being on the web.)
