3D Without Boundaries
VirtualGL redirects 3D commands from a Unix/Linux OpenGL application onto a server-side GPU and converts the rendered 3D images into a video stream with which remote clients can interact to view and control the 3D application in real time.
Real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction
Gpredict is a real-time satellite tracking and orbit prediction application. Gpredict can track an unlimited number of satellites and display the data in tables and various graphical view.
Static and Dynamic Structural Analysis of 2D and 3D frames.
FRAME3DD is a program for the static and dynamic structural analysis of two- and three-dimensional frames and trusses with elastic and geometric stiffness.
The Ground Station Software Suite projects aims at providing free, useful software tools for ham radio operators. Currently, this projects hosts the Grig communication radio control.
Earth orbits and coverage display in 3D on your laptop.
SaVi - simulate Iridium, Globalstar, O3b, Sirius Radio, GPS, Galileo and other satellite constellations, modify them, or design your own. Uses Tcl/Tk and Unix libraries; 3D viewing option requires Geomview running on X Window.
Simulation for spacecraft attitude control system analysis and design
42 is a comprehensive general-purpose simulation of spacecraft attitude and orbit dynamics. Its primary purpose is to support design and validation of attitude control systems, from concept studies through integration and test. 42 accurately models multi-body spacecraft attitude dynamics (with rigid and/or flexible bodies), and both two-body and three-body orbital flight regimes, modelling environments from low Earth orbit to throughout the solar system. 42 simulates multiple spacecraft concurrently, facilitating studies of rendezvous, proximity operations, and precision formation flying. It also features visualization of spacecraft attitude.
clipsmm is a C++ interface to the CLIPS libray, a C library for developing expert systems.
ProStack - a platform for image processing and analysis
ProStack - a platform for image processing and analysis. It implements various image processing methods as separate modules, that can be joined in a complex image processing scenario by use of a graphical user interface. RPMs are available at https://build.opensuse.org/project/repositories/home:mackoel:compbio
SPHERES Facility software for scientists
MIT's spacecraft simulator for control algorithm development
The SPHERES simulation is designed to support most software-related aspects of single- and multi-satellite SPHERES operations. The simulation code base consists of simulated versions of most of the SPHERES core flight code and additional code that simulates dynamics, communications, and other environmental interaction. The simulation is particularly valuable during the early stages of algorithm development and implementation as an aid in accelerating the learning curve for any Guest Scientist for SPHERES. Algorithms may be implemented in C or Embedded MATLAB and executed in the MATLAB simulation environment to verify general desired behavior. With some limitations, the code used in the simulation can be directly transferred to the SPHERES hardware. We are sharing this project with the public to gather more interest for SPHERES Guest Scientists. Feel free to use and contribute to this code base, just don't forget to credit the MIT Space Systems Lab if you distribute any results.
This project is a collection of examples and solutions for DDS (Data Distribution Service) on real user-driven situations. All the subprojects are released under the Apache license, allowing developers to take pieces and integrate in other projects.
MEX/JNI is a set of bindings between MATLAB and Java using Mathworks' External Interface API and Java Native Interface (JNI).
Real-time interactive 3D graphics API for scientific simulations
OpenFrames is an Application Programming Interface (API) that provides the ability to add interactive 3D graphics to any scientific simulation. A simulation developer can use OpenFrames to specify what they want to visualize, without having to know any details of computer graphics programming. Visualizations created using OpenFrames are cross-platform, hardware accelerated with OpenGL, and designed specifically to minimize computational overhead. They can be embedded within an existing GUI framework (e.g. Qt, wxWidgets, Winteracter) or created in independent OS-native windows. The OpenFrames API itself is written in C++, and bindings are available for C and Fortran.
The Robot Application Programming Interface Delegate (RAPID) is a software reference implementation for remote operations. It promotes interoperability between robot software modules. RAPID includes a standard “API” and data distribution middleware.
The X-Plane Airliners Toolkit extends the Simulator with some very important features, you will find on any modern airliner. Some features are, autoland, flap load limiter, fuel management, ground services, and a lot more.
Vibtoolbox is a set of command line utilities for analysis of vibration and acoustic test data. The vibtoolbox utilities use the standard UNIX filter model and communicate via UNIX pipes.
