I’m relatively new to gpredict, and what I would like to do is forward some tracking information from gpredict to a separate program that I’m creating. So I’m just wondering if there are any kind of APIs for that, and where I could find documentation for them, as I can’t seem to find them.
Information that I need:
- Time of next pass for X satellite
- Time until end of pass for X satellite
Things that would be nice:
- API telling GPredict to start/stop tracking said satellite
This is in the interest of automating my ground station to communicate with certain satellites as they pass over. Since GPredict doesn’t handle the actual communications process, I would like this information so that we can handle the communications process.
If there aren’t any APIs, how could I go about getting the desired information from GPredict?
