Commercial satellite tracking service for smallsat operators unveiled
Low Earth Orbit (LEO) mapping and space situational awareness services startup LeoLabs (Logan, UT) has announced what it says is the world's first commercial satellite tracking service tailored to the unique needs of smallsat and cubesat operators.

Delivered as a web-based subscription, the LeoTrack satellite tracking service offers 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.

"A new generation of space operators need more data to support responsible operations and informed decision making in an increasingly congested LEO setting," says Dan Ceperley, CEO of LeoLabs. "As the leading commercial provider of LEO monitoring and SSA services, it's a natural fit for us to serve these emerging new players."

LeoTrack, says the company, builds on its 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. The company already serves leading commercial space companies such as Maxar, BlackSky, Planet, and Swarm Technologies.

"Operators need a reliable service that delivers high-quality orbital data and the ability to demonstrate visually how their operations are managed," says 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."

The unveiling of LeoTrack coincides with this week's 33rd Annual Small Satellite Conference in Logan, Utah.
