basetime = datetime('1992-01-01 00:00');
gtime = 23853938
t1 = basetime + seconds(gtime)
t2 = dateshift(t1, 'start', 'year')
t3 = dateshift(t1, 'end', 'year')
fy = year(t1) + (t1-t2)./(t3-t2)

decyear() appears to require the Areospace Toolbox.
Also, setting the Format is not required for decyear()
