3DView/CDPP is a science tool that offers immediate 3D visualization of spacecraft position and attitude, planetary ephemerides, as well as scientific data representation (observations and models).

3DView/CDPP is a versatile, lightweight and interactive software, intended to be intuitive and easy to use.

The property licence is owned by CNES.

The following scientific missions are included: Cluster, Rosetta, Mars-Express, Venus-Express, Cassini, Galileo, Ulysses, Voyager1-2, Stereo, ACE, Wind, Geotail, SOHO, Giotto, Themis, Interball, ...
See the complete list here.
Supplementary missions are regularly added.

3DView/CDPP is connected to the AMDA tools as well as to LATMOS, FMI and SINP model databases.

3DView/CDPP runs as a JAVA webstart application; it is compatible with WINDOWS XP, VISTA, SEVEN, as well as MAC OSX and LINUX *

For a detailed description of the 3DView/CDPP capabilities, please read the tutorial and the user guide.

* JAVA 1.7.0_45 or more recent required. See also java3D requirements
When using multiple screens, 3D scene must be initialized in main one.
