Target version:-


When creating reference frame to use with the ephemeris coordinates the getFrame() method only uses the value of REF_FRAME and ignores the value of CENTER_NAME. One of the OEM examples uses REF_FRAME = EME2000 and CENTER_NAME = MARS BARYCENTER. At the same time the OEM standard specifically lists MCI as the way to specify the Mars Centered Inertial frame in Annex A.

So it seems we need to change the implementation to translate the center of the reference frame to a new origin based on the CENTER_NAME key word. The CENTER_NAME can also be another spacecraft, but I don't think we should try to support that.
