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.
Parallel Iterative Deconvolution is a multithreaded ImageJ plugin for iterative image deblurring.
A simple command to convert calendar dates to julian dates. Quite useful in timing situations where you need elapsed time between dates. Also useful for astronomy applications.
Galaxy extraterrestrial life simulation
EtiC is a galaxy simulation software that generates and renders a mock galaxy for rational estimation of the number of extraterrestrial civilizations. Stars and planets are simulated with plausible physical characteristics, based on user-adjustable parameters. An EtiC simulation run consists to generate a galaxy disk physical stars, associate planets to the stars, and for habitable planets, simulate the life stages evolution until extinction. A visual animation of the galaxy and user selection of highlighted star-planet objects is provided, together with statistics (25+ graphs) and estimates of Drake equation factors. The V2_1 provides several new features: planets surface magnetic field, reworked life stage transitions, integration of MW exoplanets catalog, planets view and graphs window optionally on different threads... EtiC is based on OpenGL / GLFW 3.2, runs on MSWindows 7 and MacOsX. Source code in C++, was developped using the Dev-C++ IDE and XCode.
Spheral++ provides a steerable parallel environment for performing coupled hydrodynamical & gravitational numerical simulations. Hydrodynamics and gravity are modelled using particle based methods (SPH and N-Body).

Specview is a Java GUI_based application for 1-D spectral visualization and analysis of astronomical spectrograms generated by a variety of observatories and instruments. Note that we no longer provide file distributions of this software. You are encouraged to visit the specview web site download page: http://www.stsci.edu/institute/software_hardware/specview/download to retrieve an installer appropriate for your platform.
Generate pdf diagrams for analemmatic sundial construction, papercraft sundial, and "plus" card game.
Interface to allow access to UDF datasets from within IDL
retep is a collection of Java API's covering PDF, XML, J2EE , Swing and now NetBeans modules for displaying astronomical maps, controlling modern "Go-To" telescopes - all in java., and accessing online databases.
The primary objective of the project is the development of a Second Life based application, in which astrophysics phenomena involving the simulation of stars kinematics can be visualized. Developed by NII, Japan.
Control Applications for Astronomical CCD Cameras
Image stacking software for Unix/Linux, primarily for Astrophotography
Simple image stacking software for Unix/Linux, primarily for Astrophotography. Written in GTKMM (C++). Note: Currently being planned/implemented; not final working software yet.
A neutral hydrogen galaxy modeling and fitting tool
Galactus is a new astronomical modeling package. The aim is to model and fit datacubes from radio synthesis telescopes. Galactus is the only HI tool which can predict the HI (self-)absorption.
Port of Astrolog and/or Astrolog32 to Java. Astrolog is a free astrology software program since 1991. Astrolog can create horoscopes, natal charts, and calculate current planetary positions in sidereal, traditional, and heliocentric formats.
Jaude is "Java pour les Astronomes Utilisateurs de Detecteurs Electroniques". Jaude is Eclipse RCP and plugin based. So it will provide an Eclipse interface for JSky library (http://archive.eso.org/JSky/).
jASCOMPure is Java implementation of ASCOM framework (and later drivers). Everything is in Java, so it is usable on most of operating systems (with used rxtx API ported).Applications can access drivers directly (java) or through embeded JSP pages.
А GUI tool to visualize the development of the early Universe, the process of creation of galaxies and stars and the spectrum of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR).
MISS is a software simulation of the control room of the International Space Station. It is intended to be both entertaining and educational, aimed at high school students. Various pre-configured and random events encourage interaction and groupwork.
Oree - Optimum Real-time Estimation of Events of Interaction: real-time reconstruction of photon interaction events in Gamma Cameras. Optionally making use of a CUDA enable GPU, Oree achieves reconstruction of over 1M events/sec.
Python Arrays is a project to reimplement the existing Python Numeric module which adds the ability to efficiently manipulate large numeric arrays in ways similar to Matlab and IDL.
Backend for scripts to control an SBIG ST-4 CCD camera.
Software to control a remote telescope via a web interface. Includes software needed to operate a motorized dome, telescope, and cameras.This project has been partially funded by a grant from the Northwest Academic Computing Consortium.
The project is a time domain correlator for the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell BE). It is the outcome of a master thesis conducted at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (www.irfu.se). The project files can be found in the SVN repository.
Uranograph is a set of classes and methods written in Java for generating printable and viewable star charts based on different data sources. Currently the Lambert azimuthal equal-area projection is implemented. Output in SVG and PDF (with iText library)
