Gpredict is a real time satellite tracking program for GNOME, based on the tracking engine of John Magliacane's excellent satellite tracker Predict.

Gpredict includes the following features:

  • Tracking an infinite number of satellites limited only by the physical memory and processing power of the computer.
  • Display the tracking data in lists, maps, polar plots or any combination of these.
  • You can have many modules open at the same time, either in a notebook or in their own windows. The module can also run in full-screen mode.
  • You can use many ground stations. Ground station coordinates can be entered manually or you can get some approximate values from a list with more than 2000 predefined locations worldwide.
  • Predict upcoming passes for satellites, including passes where a satellite may be visible and communication windows open.
  • Very detailed information about both the real time data and the predicted passes.
  • Gpredict can run in real-time, simulated real-time (fast forward and backward), and manual time control.
  • Doppler tuning of radios via Hamlib rigctld.
  • Antenna rotator control via Hamlib rotctld.
