Development of a tool that predicts the orbital parameters of a satellite from an initial state vector for a specified time interval is addressed. The elements used in the algorithm are presented. The prediction performance of the algorithm is demonstrated by using the two line elements of a GPS satellite and the CHAMP scientific satellite.
