MPC released a new circular

We offer you the statistics on the data of the seventh Circular MPC (MPC 88763- 89088) for July 12, 2014. You can also view a list of the most productive observatories in the world by the number of measurements.

CoLiTec software improvements – Summer 2014, version 1.4.6.1 from 6 June, 2014

1. Implemented Track & Stack function in the AdditionFrames module -frame addition with given parameters (function Track & Stack).

2. In viewer LookSky added function of a complex (full) processing zone using the CoLiTec. Connected to the console version “CoLiTec.exe”. Complex frame processing includes: Filter – alignment background; coordinate reduction – permanent settlement plates; detection of moving objects; search for known objects in the database and identification of found and known objects.

3. Designed ALM-fitting procedure compact groups of objects.

4. All modules and personal digital libraries under-signed separately signed, completely filled with system information, as well as established  unique icons launch.

5. Designed installer different versions of the program, it also signed by and has the appropriate version information.

6. Changed console application module intraframe processing POCLT.

7. Created the possibility of using the internal database as intermodule interface project (working with markers and stellar catalogs).

8.  In interframe processing the maximum allowable speed for objects corresponding circular blobs,determined by the minimum duty cycle of by time between frames.

9. VKCLT module increased degree of control of the computing process by the under identification of frames. If at least one frame will not identified – stop work module, the module interframe processing VOCLT will not run.

10. Created module LitePO – console application for a “fast” fitting (handling 500 the brightest peaks) and identification of the frame with star catalogs.

Another newspaper wrote about us

Interest of the press about discovery of asteroids 2014 KH2 continues to grow. Not so long ago, Larissa Salimonovych, Kiev correspondent information and political newspaper “Ukraine moloda” interviewed project participants CoLiTec. The purpose of the interview was not only discovered asteroid 2014 KH2 but about the software itself by which the discovery was made.
During the conversation, the project manager Vadim Savanevych told about the program and its basic methods:

«Our work in the West called collection light technology – says doctor of technical sciences, professor of Department of Electronic Computers Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics Vadim Savanevych. – The program is based computational method to store data object’s trajectory, the parameters of which we do not know. That is, we do not know where he was going or that cosmic body, the speed with which it moves and in which direction. But despite this, we can save the data along its path and see the invisible. In a series of frames received with the help of our program you can accurately determine the nature of the object, which became the subject of study»

Sergii Khlamov , one of the software developers also share the latest news and project plans CoLiTec:

«A few days ago we started our public distribution “technology” to learn about us as many people as possible – says one of the project Sergey trash. – It is fundamentally important because experts will subsequently make suggestions to improve the program, which will allow us to develop further in this direction».
