Hi everyone, i am new at using Cesium. I am interested in measuring the distance from the terrain to aerial vehicle flying on it. For this purpose, i want to use a radar sensor attached to the vehicle. Is there any sensor i can use in Cesium simulation ?

If you’re simply trying to create geometry in the shape of a cone, you could use the built in geometry types. Here’s a code example with a cone:
And you can use the geometry to calculate its intersections with objects in the scene to resemble a sensor behavior.
You could also create fully custom geometry in Cesium using the primitive layer, but this is a little more involved. If you’re trying to do some visibility/coverage analysis, the commercial ion SDK analytics package has a lot of tools for this:
