PROPAT is is a small set of functions in Matlab to simulate and propagate orbit and attitude of an Earth's satellite. Several functions allow to transform between orbit and attitude coordinates.
To install and use it, follow these steps:
1) Download the PROPAT package (zip compressed)
2) Unpack the propat.zip file in any folder.
