Earth centric orbit propagation tool. Built from scratch in python.

Functionality includes:

  • tracking sattelite location over time
  • plotting sattelite ground tracks and path through 3D space
  • tracking the rotation of the Earth and location of the Sun
  • predicting sattelite eclipses
  • converting between orbital parameters and state vectors
  • converting between ECI, ECEF, and cartesian reference frames
  • converting between mean, eccentric, and true anomolies
  • calculating other orbit-related quantities
