PyKEP has been created by the PaGMO development Team at the European Space Agency and was once part of the project PaGMO/PyGMO. As of the release 1.0 of PaGMO the decision was taken to move the entire keplerian_toolbox and its python alter-ego (PyKEP) to a different project and to keep supporting complete compatibility between the two projects.
PyKEP is in use at the European Space Agency’s Advanced Concepts Team since 2006.
