The Station Passes tools calculate the visibility passes of a given satellite over a set of ground stations in a station database file

The Station Passes tools consist of the following executable programs:

  • StationPasses
  • StationPassesLoop

The StationPasses program creates one file per station (if mode STATION is used in configuration file) or a single file with merged visibility segments (if mode MULTISTATION is used in configuration file)
The StationPassesLoop program, in addition, creates a file per pass with the associated satellite-station geometry, with a given time step (in seconds)

Supported platforms:

  • Linux 64-bit
  • macOS 64-bit
  • Windows 64-bit
