Enabling orbit determinator to predict orbits using real time data. It will be done using 5 steps:

  1. Finding a set of Keplerian elements that approximate the orbit well.
  2. Propagate the state until new observed data is available.
  3. Fetch new observations.
  4. Refine the estimate using Kalman filter.
  5. Repeat steps 2 to 4.

Also, allowing orbit determinator to output the data in various ways (position, velocity or right ascension, declination or ground track or 3D plot).
