Can anyone explain to me why the CorridorHandler in the TrackCorridor.java tutorial will give me a larger corridor width with a small degree value and a smaller corridor width with a larger degree value? And at 0 Degrees it’s just a line(This part makes sense).


The comment says “angular offset (half width of the corridor, as seen from spacecraft, in degrees)”. So the following results don’t make sense to me.


I first thought it was using depression angle, but that wouldn’t make sense either.


At 2 degrees:

At 79 degrees:
