orbitNP.py - orbit adjustment and normal point software
« on: December 14, 2018, 12:46:06 PM »
Dear all

The orbit adjustment and normal point formation software orbitNP.py is now available for download on the ILRS Software webpage: https://ilrs.cddis.eosdis.nasa.gov/technology/software/index.html

It was developed from FORTRAN code at the SGF, Herstmonceux UK. It includes a README file and an open source license.

A Python3 installation is required, with Matplotlib, NumPy and SciPy (>0.17) libraries.

OrbitNP.py runs from the command line and can process full-rate CRD files or raw epoch-range data using a corresponding CPF prediction file. Please see the examples in the README file. Post any issues here and I will help to resolve them.

To see the code, open it in a text viewer. If you find any bugs, errors or typos please let me know.  I would welcome any assistance to develop this code. 

I hope this is useful to the community as an analysis tool and example code for reducing SLR data.

Matt
