GeoControl is a compact but powerful and accurate software system for station keeping of single and colocated satellites, which has been developed at the German Space Operations Center. It includes four core modules for orbit determination (including maneuver estimation), maneuver planning, monitoring of proximities between colocated satellites and interference and event prediction. A simple database containing state vector and maneuver information at selected epochs in maintained as a central interface between the modules. A menu-driven shell utilizing form screens for data input serves as the central user interface. The software is written in Ada and Fortran and may be used on VAX workstations or mainframes under the VMS operating system.
