SaVi is satellite visualization software that lets you create, run, examine, and modify satellite orbits in two and three dimensions. Simulations of Iridium, Globalstar, Galileo, GPS, and other satellite constellations are included. SaVi requires Tcl and Tk on a system with Unix libraries. SaVi works well with the 3D renderer Geomview. Geomview is optional, though recommended for its 3D rendering capabilities.

INDI is an instrument-neutral distributed interface control protocol that aims to provide backend driver support and automation for a wide range of astronomical devices (telescopes, focusers, CCDs, etc.). Current supported devices include many telescopes, CCDs, filter wheels, focusers, and video cams. INDI is used in popular astronomy suites like Xephem, KStars, DCD, and Cartes Du Ciel.

Gpredict is a real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction program. Besides the general orbital data for satellites, gpredict can also calculate the footprint, visibility, doppler shift, signal loss, and signal delay for each satellite relative to one or more ground stations. The calculated data can be viewed in tables, on maps, or on polar graphs.

GCX provides a complete set of data-reduction functions for CCD photometry, with frame WCS fitting, automatic target identification, aperture photometry of target and standard stars, single-frame ensemble photometry data reduction, multi-frame color coefficient fitting, extinction coefficient fitting, and all-sky photometry. It also controls CCD cameras and telescopes, and implements automatic observation scripting. Cameras are controlled through a hardware-specific server, to which gcx connects through a TCP socket. The program can control telescopes which use the LX200 protocol, and refine pointing by matching images to the GSC catalog position of stars. It generates FITS files with comprehensive header information.
