SatNOGS DB is an effort to create an hollistic, unified, global transmitter database for all satellite transmitters. You can export the data or even connect your application using our API. It's part of the SatNOGS project.


The DB is open to everyone. Anyone is able to submit suggestions or use the existing Transmitters. All data are public and freely under the Creative Commons Atribution-Share Alike license.
