SatStar provides up to date detailed technical information about commercial geostationary satellites: downlink (EIRP) and uplink (G/T) coverage/footprint maps, frequency plans, transmissions, TV/radio channels etc. The coverage maps are based on official sources, all in the same format and using the same map projection.
The satellite coverage data is stored in a database where, given a specific location, you get signal strength estimates for all satellite beams covering that location. The system has been successfully integrated into satellite receivers and maritime TVRO applications to calculate which satellite signals can be received and to automatically download channel information for available satellite beams. The system can also be used in a number of other applications where you need to find answers to questions like "Which satellite beams can I receive at my location with my current equipment?", "How do I aim my satellite dish to receive a specific satellite beam?" or "What dish size do I need to receive a specific satellite beam?".
For many years, SatStar has had a very close cooperation with a leading metadata supplier with many well known content providers, broadcast giants and new media companies on their client list. SatStar can provide a powerful tool to extract relevant data from almost any electronic source of channel schedule information.
SatStar also offers products and services like high resolution custom made footprints for publications, GIS vector or raster data for satellite footprints, systems for searching and handling satellite or any other kind of coverage data, systems for controlling satellite receivers and motorised satellite dishes etc.
and TV guide data from the internet
SatStar can provide detailed technical information about commercial geostationary satellites. It can be used by professionals, e.g. for budget link calculations, and can easily be integrated into custom applications.
All data can be stored in a database, including downlink and uplink coverage maps, frequency plans, transmissions, TV/radio channels etc. For more information, please refer to the Satellite Data page.
