SSynth is a package of scientific software consisting of shell scripts and fortran source code for efficiently calculating a model stellar spectrum using the standard LTE, homogenous, and plane parallel approximations.
PODWG is a Wallpaper Generator from various "Picture Of the Day" sources such as NASA's "Astronomy Picture Of the Day".
qapod - Fetch each day a new picture from web, store them and put them onto your background, now mainly apod (astronomic picture of the day, http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html). It can also greet YOU with a nice picture every morning :-)
PP3 creates celestial charts. It generates resolution independent sky maps of very high graphical quality. They can be used for example as illustrations in books or on web pages. Databases are included but you may use own data if you wish.
Desktop gadget (Windows only). The simulation of a real horizontal sundial, dependent on a geographic position (latitude). Size can be chosen between big and small. It can use current (computer) time, or user-specified date&time.
Calculator that takes care of measurement units.
Java program for computations with values expressed in terms of physical or other units. Supports complicated mathematical expressions and user-defined functions. Invoked from scripts, line command, or as GUI. Extensive units data base.

This project is to create an RPG-creation/GM tool for creating, editing, and viewing a Sci-Fi RPG universe. Included features include galaxy, quadrant, sector, system, planet, moon, and world-level maps and notes. Based on the program \'StarMap\' written
Please see AstroTortilla -project instead.
AstroMate is a project for automating repeating astrophotography tasks, such as equatorial mount polar alignment and target centering, by integrating existing tools and especially plate solving to the ASCOM telescope control interface. This project has been replaced by AstroTortilla.
Convert date and time to seconds past j2000 epoch or convert seconds past j2000 epoch to a date. This project consists of two very small, short applications that use the cspice libraries.
A free, portable, plug-in based, gnomonic sundial calculator utility
jFITS is a Java Swing based application and applet for quickly viewing and performing simple operations on astronomical FITS formatted CCD imaging data.
Mobile Planet Tracking, lets you track the position of any of the 8 planets in the Solar System, you can specify your current earth position, date and time to get the most approximated values.
AstronomicalAlgorithms is a FREE portable ANSI C implementation of some of the algorithms published in Astronomical Algorithms by Jean Meeus (2nd edition, December 1998, Willmann-Bell ISBN 0943396638)
No longer actively maintained. A graphical tool for the simulation of the solar system, based on gravity power calculations. Focus lies on a nice OpenGL graphic and user friendly modification possibilities. Subject Astronomy
This package is a collection of all Celestia add-ons required to work with the scripts available at cielespace.org website.
JSatTrak is a Satellite tracking program written in Java. It allows you to predict the position of any satellite in real time or in the past or future. It uses advanced SGP4/SDP4 algorithms developed by NASA/NORAD to propagate the satellite orbits.
N-body implementation of two important algorithm : Tree-code (Barnes-Hut) and FMM (Fast multipole Method). We provide this two algorithm with a new data structure named compressed_octree.
The CASPER library is used to program FPGA systems for high speed digital signal processing for astronomical research. This version uses Xilinx XSG/ISE/EDK 8.2.
XAudine : Linux control command software,GUI and device drivers for operating Audine astronomy CCD camera.
Astronomy planetarium for advanced observers
Implementation in Python of some of the statistical methods provided by "asurv", the survival analysis software.
Star Finder is a simple programme that will calculate if and when a star is up in the Sky. It contains a database of 100,000 stars, or an objects RA and DEC can be entered manually.
A gravitational-wave parameter-estimation code for LIGO/Virgo
SPINspiral is a parameter-estimation code for the analysis of gravitational-wave signals detected by LIGO/Virgo.
Plot GALPROP output
Plot package for GALPROP https://sourceforge.net/projects/galprop Plots models and data for cosmic-ray spectra, secondary/primary ratios, gamma rays, synchrotron. Includes gamma-ray source population synthesis and corresponding plots. For gamma rays, convolves models with the Fermi-LAT response. This release is to assess interest. It requires many input data files (not included) which will be made available as required. With the data provided cosmic-ray spectra and ratios and source population synthesis will work. Uses CERN root package. See README for details. Plots produced with GALPLOT can be seen in http://arxiv.org/abs/1101.1381 http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2011A%26A...534A..54S http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2011ApJ...739...29B and http://arxiv.org/abs/1309.2947, published version: http://mnras.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/10/03/mnras.stt1718.abstract . Uses the cosmic-ray database https://sourceforge.net/projects/cosmicraydataba
