Abstract : One goal of the Astrodynamics Division is to provide information on basic, standardized orbit analysis tools for Phillips Laboratory and AF space systems. The purpose of this orbit analysis survey is to list and measure the capabilities of existing commercial-off-the-shelf(COTS) and government furnished orbit analysis software packages. Consequently, military and civilian personnel can determine the best software package or complementary set of software packages to fulfill their needs while reducing acquisition costs and the need for in-house software support.
