All angles are in decimal degrees. The coordinate system for the angles is polar and azimuth based. The polar angle is measured from up (meaning the normal vector to the surface plane of the Earth) toward the Earth's surface. Its value ranges from 0 to 180. A value of zero points straight up, a value of 90 is in the plane of the Earth, and a value of 180. The azimuth angle 0 looks straight down at the ground. It is measured from East in a counter-clockwise fashion as viewed from above. Its value ranges from 0 value (as 0 points straight east), to a value of 90 points North, 0 to 360. A value of 180 points West, and a value of 270 points south.

SLI feedback must be sent as POINT data.
