Path: Orbit/StraightLine

% Fuel mass for a constant accel/exhaust velocity electric propulsion system.
 Assumes constant acceleration with constant exhaust velocity. The power and
 thrust will decrease throughout the trajectory. Flyby and stopping are
 supported. This uses a straight line model.

 Type MassFuelElectricConstantUE for a demo.
      d = MassFuelElectricConstantUE;   % data structure
   dOut = MassFuelElectricConstantUE( d )
