PREDICT is an open-source, multi-user satellite tracking and orbital prediction program written under the Linux operating system by John A. Magliacane, KD2BD. PREDICT is free software. Users may redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 2 of the License or any later version.
PREDICT software is released in three forms:
* A version compatible with Linux or Unix operating systems (as well as some derivatives, such as Mac OS X),
* A version for DOS and DOS-based operating systems operating on 32-bit CPUs (80386s or better) that contains many, but not all the features and functionality of the Linux/Unix version.
* Bundled as part of an application-specific Linux distribution (Portable PREDICT Plus!) that includes a small suite of satellite communication applications in addition to PREDICT that can all be booted from a pair of floppy disks. (No permanent installation required.)
