CFD-related Fortran libraries and applications
The CFD Utility Software Library (previously known as the Aerodynamics Division Software Library at NASA Ames Research Center) contains nearly 30 libraries of generalized subroutines and close to 100 applications built upon those libraries. These utilities have accumulated during four decades or so of software development in the aerospace field. All are written in Fortran 90 or FORTRAN 77 with potential reuse in mind. The only exception is the C translations of a dozen or so numerics routines grouped as C_utilities. David Saunders and Robert Kennelly are the primary authors, but miscellaneous contributions by others are gratefully acknowledged. See 1-line summaries of the libraries and applications under the Files menu. Each library folder also contains 1-line summaries of the grouped subroutines, while each application folder contains READMEs adapted from the main program headers. NASA permission to upload actual software was granted on Jan. 24, 2014.

OTB is an open-source C++ library for remote sensing images processing
The Orfeo Toolbox is a C++ library for high resolution remote sensing image processing. It is developped by CNES in the frame of the ORFEO program. More information is available at www.orfeo-toolbox.org It is based on the medical image processing library ITK and offers particular functionalities for remote sensing image processing in general and for high spatial resolution images in particular. Targeted algorithms for high resolution optical images (SPOT, Quickbird, Worldview, Landsat, Ikonos), hyperspectral sensors (Hyperion) or SAR (TerraSarX, ERS, Palsar) are available. Orfeo ToolBox has three main access depending on the category of user: write processing chains in C++ using existing filters or creating new ones, use the OTB applications, which is a plugin-based framework allowing to extend high-level processing chains from various environment ( command-line, QT, QGis, Python....) or use Monteverdi, a software for everyday life image manipulation and analysis.

Uses a new algorithm for glound clutter attenuation prediction, based on a ray model. Terrain type data is taken from Corine CLC2006 shapefiles, which gives great accuracy for all of Europe, or from any other land cover data such as VMAP0 shapefiles. Has an internal APRS client which can be used to display stations as a landmark. Can use antenna radiation patterns generated by 4NEC2 or other NEC2 compatible antenna modelling programs. QRadioPredict can operate as a traditional standalone program or can be connected to Flightgear for real-time radio analysis.
