Satellite tracking software
PreviSat is a satellite tracking software for observing purposes. Very easy to use, it shows positions of artificial satellites in real-time or manual mode. PreviSat is able to make predictions of their passes, predictions of Iridium flares and several other calculations.
Astronomy CCD capture software
A CCD capture software intended for the amateur astronomer. It include all the features required to perform digital imaging CCD observation of celestial objects. Using the standard drivers protocol INDI and ASCOM it can connect and control the CCD camera, the focuser, the filter wheel and the telescope mount. This software is part of a full suite for astronomical observation: https://sourceforge.net/projects/skychart/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/indistarter/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/eqmodgui/ Requirement: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libpasastro/ See also: https://sourceforge.net/projects/indi/
Echoes it's a radio spectral analysis software for RTL-SDR devices,
Echoes it's a radio spectral analysis software for RTL-SDR devices, designed for meteor scattering purposes. RTL-SDR are very cheap Software Defined Radios that uses DVB-T TV tuner dongles based on Realtek's RTL2832U chipset. Echoes doesn't demodulate neither decode any human-made signal. Its main goal is to analyze and record the total power of natural signals and generate screenshots and tabular data (CSV, GNUplot) output in presence of particular peaks in a selected narrow range of frequencies. Since there is no demodulation, there is no provision for audio listening, except for a notify sound when an event has been recorded.
General data-reduction tool for fiber-fed integral-field spectrographs
p3d is a general data-reduction tool for use with fiber-fed integral-field spectrographs (IFSs); although, the spectrum viewer works with spectrum data cubes of any origin. The tool is built about the proprietary software IDL (Harris/EXELIS; see http://www.harrisgeospatial.com), but can be used without any license. Most slowly running loops are implemented in parallelized C (OpenMP).
A simple N-Body simulator.
This project simulates the behavior, dynamics, and motion of a group of celestial objects. Given N point masses in a three-dimensional space, its present positions and velocities, and supposing that the force of attraction experienced between each pair of particles is Newtonian, the project approximately predicts it's positions and velocities at a future moment of time. The project can visualize the simulation, and create a graphic real-time output using FreeGLUT, and also have an option for textual output and archiving. Bugale N-Body Data Editor provides a graphic user interface for creating and editing the settings and body data files of Bugale N-Body Simulator. It can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/bugaledataedit
C++/CUDA/OpenMP based Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) Solver
DualSPHysics is based on the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method and can be downloaded from the official website (www.dual.sphysics.org). The code is developed to study free-surface flow phenomena where Eulerian methods can be difficult to apply, such as waves or impact of dam-breaks on off-shore structures. DualSPHysics is a set of C++, CUDA and Java codes based on the SPHysics FORTRAN project (www.sphysics.org) that are designed to deal with real-life engineering problems and are provided along with pre-compiled binaries and source for Windows/Linux/Unix as well as a number of example test cases.
A MATLAB toolbox to simulate optical systems
Modal Interferometer Simulation Tool (MIST) is a MATLAB toolbox that can simulate arbitrary resonant optical systems in the paraxial beam approximation. It allows the user to define any optical setup (composed typically of laser sources, mirrors, lenses, electro-optical modulators and detectors) and to compute the static laser field at any point. It uses a Hermite-Gauss modal decomposition to simulate diffraction limited optics. This tool is being developed mainly for simulation of large scale interferometers with resonant cavities used for the detection of gravitational waves. Subscribe to the mailing list for updates and news. If you use MIST in your own simulation work, please cite is as G. Vajente, "Fast modal simulation of paraxial optical systems: the MIST open source toolbox" Classical and Quantum Gravity 30, 075014 (2013)
a program for astrodynamics, written in C++ include orbit propagator, formation, etc
Calculates the MayaDate from a gregorian Date
Enter an gregorian Date (a Date from our Calendar) and the MayaDate inclusive the Tzolkin and Haab get generated. I prefer the Thompson Method but i've implemeted the Lounsbury too.
