In this paper, the benefits of parallel computing using a workstation cluster are explored for satellite orbit prediction. Data and function decomposition techniques are used. Speedup and throughput are the performance metric studied. The software employed for parallelization was the Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) developed by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. PVM enables a network of heterogeneous workstations to appear as a parallel multicomputer to the user programs. A speedup of almost 6 was achieved when using 8 SUN workstations.
