SatNOGS DB Reaching a New Milestone: 100 Million Dataframes!

This week marks a significant milestone for the SatNOGS project as the SatNOGS DB stored its 100 millionth dataframe!!! The 100millionth frame was a reception of FALCONSAT-3 by N2ACQ-FM07ag station.

We can only be thrilled with the enormity of this number as data are sent from stations belonging to the SatNOGS network as well as independent stations and telemetry forwarders. We are also very grateful for these partnerships and the ongoing collaborations. Congratulations to all for reaching such an amazing milestone!

The SatNOGS DB receives frames from more than 1500 stations around the globe, tracking over 560 satellites, 1100+ transmitters, and 100 Million dataframes. It is the biggest, open-source and crowd-sourced database for openly distributed satellite data.

Our commitment to the Principles of Openness (Open development and governance, open-data, open-source, free access to Space) as stated explicitly in the Libre Space Manifesto, and our devotion to supporting knowledge and scientific research fuel this project. However, SatNOGS is brought to life and expanding because of the unceasing collaboration, dedication and ongoing contribution of our vast network of Space enthusiasts, university teams, satellite operators, ground station owners, and last but not least radio amateurs; all the members and the open-source supporters who make up the SatNOGS community and add to the project’s success.

Do you want to join SatNOGS and be part of the next Milestone?

If you find the SatNOGS project interesting there are many ways you can contribute. You can opt for helping with the SatNOGS DB, either by joining the SatNOGS network, setting up a station or forwarding the frames to the SatNOGS DB through the SiDS protocol. You can also opt for creating decoders to help us decode the load of data received and visualize them to the SatNOGS Dashboard. If you are fluent in Python and/or JS, you can contribute to the satnogs-db web application.

We always welcome people who wish to contribute bringing their time, ideas, knowledge and expertise to our projects. If this sounds interesting to you, you can start by checking the SatNOGS knowledge-base wiki. You are also welcome to join our community forums and drop us a line on the chat.

We are looking forward to having you onboard the SatNOGS project and community. Join us now so that you are part of our next Milestone!

Thank you!!
