Satellite Data

Are you looking for detailed technical information about commercial geostationary satellites: downlink (EIRP) and uplink (G/T) coverage/footprint maps, frequency plans, transmissions, TV/radio channels etc?


Some information is very hard to find and not available from one source. If you find what you are looking for, you have to spend a lot of time processing the information to be able to use it and, still, there are probably a lot of data which is not in the correct format. SatStar has the solution to the problem.


SatStar maintains a database of all this information. It can be used by professionals, e.g. for budget link calculations, and can easily be integrated into custom applications. All data can be delivered in a format of your choice.


If you are looking for functionality, rather than data only, we can help you access information by creating a web interface on the SatStar website for database queries that suits your specific requirements. We can also provide you with an API, e.g. a SOAP interface, to perform remote custom queries from your own website or from your own application, e.g., "List receivable satellite FTA sport channels in German at a particular location".


To illustrate how data can be used, please have a look at our free interactive BeamFinder tool. It enables the user to specify a location (longitude/latitude, nearest city/port, or by clicking on a map) and size of antenna and receive a complete list of available satellite beams which can be received at that specific location with that particular antenna size. If you are logged in, you can access a BeamFinder demonstration which also indicates receivable TV channels with the possibility to control an ACU (Antenna Control Unit) and a satellite receiver (based on Enigma 1/2 OS).


Below you will find examples of satellite data that SatStar can provide. For more information, or if you would like to discuss any specific requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us at sales@satstar.net.
