The TAI-UTC correction


This attribute specifies the difference between TAI and UTC (i.e. the number of leap seconds) at the moment corresponding to the Frame s Epoch value. The default value of AST__BAD causes the number of leap seconds to be determined from an internal look-up table, which is kept up-to-date manually by the AST development team. Therefore it is only necessary to assign a value to this attribute if the version of AST in use is so old that it does not include all leap seconds that occurred prior to the time represented by the Frame s Epoch value.
Floating point.


All Frames have this attribute.
