Gpredict - Satellite Tracking Application

  •        53

Gpredict is a real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction program for the Linux desktop. It uses the SGP4/SDP4 propagation algorithms together with NORAD two-line element sets (TLE). Its features include:

  • Tracking of a large number of satellites only limited by the physical memory and processing power of the computer
  • Display the tracking data in lists, maps, polar plots and any combination of these
  • Have many modules open at the same either in a notebook or in their own windows. The modules can also run in full-screen mode
  • You can use many ground stations
  • Predict upcoming passes
  • Gpredict can run in real-time, simulated real-time (fast forward and backward), and manual time control
  • Doppler tuning of radios via Hamlib rigctld
  • Antenna rotator control via Hamlib rotctld
