SatCE is a satellite tracking application. To correctly predict the satellite position you need fresh tle data (not more than 5 days old)!!! Also the accurate location lat and lon (this can be taken from GPS) and time. The UTC time is taken from Windows CE system therefore set apposite time zone in settings. Now the time can be synchronised with the one from GPS.
This program is using SDP4/SGP4 or SDP8/SGP8 algorithms to calculate near and far satellites positions in space.
In all calculations of lat and lon the oblate Earth shape is used.
The program uses GAPI engine for graphics and API for text mode.
SatCE can track up to 150 satellites at once (but this is not the hard limit).
SatCE reads from file standard two lines elements *.tle files (containing satellites orbital parameters) or read them directly from internet.
SatCE is very fast (much faster than I could find for sat tracking in internet for PocketPC)!!! A screen is updated every second without any delay with all these fancy things.
There is also a lot of info like satellites parameters, GPS, moon distance its face size and some information about sun.
Satellites can be selected in map and sky mode by taping them with the stick. Only selected satellites from menu bar are displayed. By default all satellites are displayed. Come back to text mode is with help of enter button (just push every one if you don't know which one it is).
You can find more information about space objects and related topics here. From this location you can get the last *.tle files.
For precision comparison you can try PC program Orbitron wroten by Sebastian Stoff (these calculation results are consistent!).
What's New in This Release:
· All screens with exit (top right corner)
· Corrected small bug in speed for SDP8
