In addition, when using particular Satcat services, you shall be subject to any posted guidelines applicable to such services. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use please do not use the site and do not register to be a member of Satcat.

Overview

Satcat is a website providing mainly satellite tracking Services. Thousands of objects can be tracked in real time. The software used for tracking is using mainly space surveillance data provided by "Space-Track.org", a website consisting of a partial catalog of observations collected by the US Space Surveillance Network, operated by US Air Force Space Command (AFSPC). AFSPC does not make any warranties as to the accuracy or completeness of the data provided and does not endorse any product or service that utilizes its data. Satcat is an authorized redistributor and the license is renewed annually. In special circumstances for a few satellites the traking data ("keplerian elements") are derived from public sources (monitoring or visual observation). Users can specify their own location in order to have a better tracking experience. Registration is required to customize locations. Otherwise default locations are assumed based on the user's IP address.

These Terms of Use apply to the Satcat Service as well as any new products or services that we may add in the future (unless stated otherwise).
