Re: ultiment squint profile



Hi Joseph and all,
I asked Viktor Kudielka a similar question some time ago.

The answer, as I remember it, is that the difference in squint
angle in the footprint, when AO-40 is at or near apogee is 
approximately 5 degrees.

One way to test this - if you use NOVA f. Windows - is to
make AO-40 earth pointing. Make a couple of test runs and
use listing to get the squint angle.
