GPREDICT 1.3.3 / 1.4 PreRelease

Enables you to track a long list of satellites, predict their orbits and view detailed information pertaining to them, with support for multiple tabs
GPREDICT is a software tool which provides users with a simple means of tracking in real-time a long built-in list of satellites, as well as view information regarding them.

Portability advantages

You are not required to go through the installation process, as this utility is portable. As a consequence, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to be updated with new entries, and no leftovers will remain after their removal from the hard drive.

Another noteworthy aspect is that if you place the program files to an external data unit, such as a USB flash drive, you can take GPREDICT anywhere with you, and run it on all computers you can get your hands on.

Easy-to-use environment

The interface encompasses quite a clear-cut and minimal interface, as it encompasses a menu bar, an interactive map and information pertaining to a particular satellite. It becomes quite clear that all types of users can learn how to get around it, including the ones that are not very experienced with computers in general. Moreover, Help contents are provided, which only enforce the previous statement.

Add ground stations and types of satellites you can monitor

This application enables you to choose from a very long list of satellites, grouped according to their purpose, such as military, weather, disaster, engineering, geostationary and education. In addition to that, you should know it is possible to add a ground station, so that you can view what satellites might be near your city and when they might pass again.

View and update details

Information pertaining to each satellite can be brought up, including operational status, catalogue number, element set number, epoch time, inclination, mean anomaly and mean motion. All of these can be updated periodically from the network or from local files, so that you can have access to the latest information all the time.

Bottom line

In conclusion, GPREDICT proves to be an efficient and reliable piece of software, as it does not hinder the system’s performance, and no errors or bugs have been detected in our tests. The interface is suitable to all user categories, Help contents are provided and there are sufficient options to keep you busy for quite a while.
