LeoLabs, a commercial provider of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) mapping and Space Situational Awareness (SSA) services has announced LeoTrack, one of the first commercial satellite tracking service tailored to the needs of today’s smallsat and CubeSat operators.
LeoTrack, delivered as a web-based subscription, promises satellite operators a full range of monitoring capabilities, including precision tracking of satellites, orbital state vectors, predictive radar availability, scheduled passes, and real-time orbit visualization for constellations as well as individual satellites.
Commenting on the announcement, Dan Ceperley, CEO of LeoLabs said: “A new generation of space operators need more data to support responsible operations and informed decision making in an increasingly congested LEO setting.”
“As the leading commercial provider of LEO monitoring and SSA services, it’s a natural fit for us to serve these emerging new players.”
“Operators need a reliable service that delivers high-quality orbital data and the ability to demonstrate visually how their operations are managed,” added Ceperley.
“This is precisely what LeoTrack delivers. You simply subscribe to the service, and LeoLabs does the provisioning. The key is simplicity and quality, and we believe LeoTrack exemplifies the emerging model for satellite constellation management.”
LeoTrack builds on LeoLabs’ multi-year history of providing satellite and space debris tracking services for leading constellation operators in LEO. Supporting missions ranging from advance earth observation to IoT connectivity, LeoLabs already serves such diverse commercial providers such as Maxar, BlackSky, Planet and Swarm Technologies. LeoTrack now extends that same value proposition to the entire smallsat community.
Sara Spangelo, CEO of Swarm Technologies added: “At Swarm, we rely on the LeoTrack service to get accurate position information for all of our 1/4-U satellites.”
“Having access to this data is key for us at initial deployment and throughout the lifetime of the satellites. We use it for operational purposes, to share with other space operators and for the general public on our website.”
For all involved in the satellite and space industry and the various market segments that enhance these dynamic environments, the 2020 SmallSat Symposium is invaluable.
The 2020 SmallSat Symposium begins on February 3, 2020, with workshops on the first day. Then the Conference continues from February 4 to 6 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley.
The SmallSat Symposium is hosted by Satnews Publishers which, since 1983, has been a provider of satellite news, media and events. This information packed forum enables you and your company to secure a larger portion of market share as well as to take a step into the next stage of your company’s, or organization’s, growth.
The personal connections at the SmallSat Symposium enable attendees to network with established organizations, subject-matter experts as well as ‘New Space’ entrants.
The SmallSat Symposium will focus on the daily changes in new technologies and the business environment that is shaping the implementation of SmallSat constellations, SmallSat launchers, the challenges facing the SmallSat developer and actors as well as the enormous benefits of these advanced technologies that will benefit our world.
This event attracts more than 100 diverse speakers, all of whom possess deep industry experience. Additionally, numerous opportunities exist to mingle and network with peers while enjoying exceptional, complimentary meals and refreshment breakfast.
