Inputs are the Keplerian orbital elements, planet properties, and ground station coordinates. Tabs include plots of spacecraft trajectory in the following coordinate systems:

Perifocal
Planet-Centered Inertial
Earth-Centered, Earth-Fixed (Planet-Centered Rotational)
East-North-Up
Groundtrack
Horizontal

Includes animation and slider controls for plotting the position of the spacecraft within the time frame defined from the time of periapsis passage, tau, to an arbitrary time, t_1. Four example .ini configurations are included to demonstrate usage.
