FTOOLS is a highly modular collection of over 200 utilities for processing and analyzing data in the FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) format. Each utility performs a single simple task such as the presentation of file contents, extraction of specific rows or columns, appending or merging tables, binning values in a column, or selecting subsets of rows based on a boolean expression. It provides both generic processing and analysis utilities and utilities specific to high energy astrophysics data sets used for the ASCA, EINSTEIN, ROSAT, GRO, VELA5B and XTE missions.

PyNOVAS allows you to calculate the position and movement of the sun, moon, planets, and stars with great precision using Python. It is based on the NOVAS software used by United States Naval Office (USNO) to produce the 'Astronomical Almanac' and 'MICA'. Ephemerides are supplied by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). You can use this software for Celestial Navigation, and also as a basis for controlling astronomical equipment.

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.
