BOTEC is a simple but useful calculator that assists with astrophysical, orbital mechanics, and space navigation calculations. It is a "back-of-the-envelope calculator" rather than an industrial-strength calculator, although this may change in the future. It is primarily intended for people familiar with physics and Python, and as such is unlikely to be useful to the average end user. It includes solar system data, and all values are strictly in SI units.

The Virtual Observatory Quantity Data Model (VOQDM) package is a "thing"-based data model for use with scientific and mathematical data in the International Virtual Observatory (IVO). It is built upon the QML (Quantity Model Language) package and, in general terms, enables fast, convenient serialization/deserialization/manipulation of Quantity-based objects and documents. An important specific application for this package is to enable the I/O of VO-catalog-based data.
