Java-based app that generates real-time displays with coordinates for any satellite's position and predicts passes for your location

editor's review




Satscape is a Java-based software application that shows the current position of any satellite and is capable of predicting when it will pass your location. It comes packed with several handy settings.

No installation required besides Java

There is no setup pack involved, which makes Satscape portable. You can extract the program files to a custom directory on your disk and just click the EXE file to run, as long as you have Java installed.

Another possibility is to save the app to a pen drive or similar removable storage unit, in order to launch it on any PC easily. Plus, it does not add new entries to the Windows registry or create extra files on the disk, thus leaving no traces behind after its removal.

Simple-to-use interface

The GUI is user-friendly, made from a simple window that enables you to change your configuration as well as view tabular data, 2D, 3D and pass predictions. You can get started by setting up your location when it comes to name and coordinates (standard or decimal). Additional ones can be established.|

Configure settings and examine satellite information

From this point on, you can view the latitude, longitude, altitude, azimuth, elevation, range and visibility for each satellite near a location in the tabular view mode, along with extra details in the 2D and 3D view. Predictions can be investigated by simply selecting a date, number of days worth of passes, and single satellite or all favorite ones.

Customize additional program options

It is possible to change the UI skin, disable speech, set the distances in miles instead of kilometres, adjust the ground track length, update speed and ambient light level, as well as disable anti-aliasing mode. What's more, you can study satellite groups.

Evaluation and conclusion

There were no kind of issues in our tests, since the tool did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. It has a good response time to commands, shows accurate information and runs on low CPU and RAM. Although it is not particularly intuitive, Satscape delivers an effective solution to checking out data for nearby satellites.
